I don’t do a lot of writing on here but i just feel like it today… I often write in a scrape book and as this is like my online scrape book I thought I could put down my thoughts here.
After not getting a job which I really wanted at Comic Relief, I was feeling quite gutted and not sure where to go to find other jobs like that one to apply for. So it was quite a surprise to get an email from the photo editor at Action Aid saying that they might be able to offer me some freelance work. Sadly when they needed someone was the same time that I am on holiday but he said that he would be meet for a chat.
I wasn’t what I was expecting when we arranged to meet at his office on Friday but I thought that I would be prepared to sell myself a bit but also knowing that he wasn’t able to offer me a job straight away. We went for a coffee and a chat and he asked me some questions but also just gave me some friendly advise of what steps to take next for example offer to voluntary work on a photo desk at a NGO as this often leads to paid work. I had never really thought about approaching NGOs directly and so when I am backing from camping in a field in Wales, I am going to do what he suggested and see where it takes me.
There is some photos of recent life to follow.
