Cassie Burns

I am a 23 year old English Language graduate from Newcastle University, currently blogging about life as a graduate and the challenges that are faced in employment and careers. I am currently working in various temporary administration roles with the hope of one day setting up my own fashion design business alongside a successful blog outlining each step of achieving my goal. I really hope to be able to help similar young people who are faced with the decision of either carrying on down a career path they are not passionate about, or starting up something themselves that they truly care about.
Additionally, before I head down my entrepreneurial path I hope to travel around Europe and work there for a period of time (maybe up to 6 months). I’m doing this because I have always wanted to travel and believe if I don’t do it now I will regret it forever. I will be posting about this on my blog; where to visit, what to do, how to live on a budget and how to find work.
Please have a look at my blog if any of this is of interest to you and I always love to do new research so if there’s anything you’d like me to write about don’t hesitate to get in touch at casjm@live.com.

Grace Gardiner

I am an aspiring writer, and I've always thought that if I can't get famous myself, I may as well write about famous people instead. I have worked all over, from More magazine, to Heat, Closer and Grazia, with even a little bit of This Morning thrown in there!
Celebrities are a big passion of mine, and it is my dream to have a job which involves them in some way!

Having recently graduated I am keen to share my experiences and the knowledge I have gained with my peers. Throughout my three years of university ups and downs have been an integral part of my life in education and these have impacted me in both positive and negative ways to aid me in becoming the individual I am now (an individual that’s still making mistakes!). On CareerGeek I am going to try and bring to light the lessons I’ve learnt so that hopefully you can receive the advice that I wish I had before I started uni. Find me on LinkedIn
