The university has always been there as a backbone for me and my fellow students with its multiple student services and facilities. One that I find very approachable is the Careers and Employability Department, who have played an important role in mentoring me. During my first year, I attended various career development and CV building workshops that got me interested in applying for internships in the first place. During the pandemic, the support was still consistent, with feedback on fine tuning my resume and building my LinkedIn portfolio. The strong and experienced team of the department helped me prepare for interviews with their tips and motivation. I am ever grateful to them for constantly enriching me to face and grab challenging opportunities.

During my first year at Middlesex, I applied for a number of internship opportunities via the university student vacancy portal. As a result, I was offered a part-time opportunity as a junior accountant and then a HR assistant role for a brief yet fruitful period of five months. The role was really varied, including tasks from data entry to tracing discrepancies, payroll assistance, and inventory control. I also took on different roles when required. This experience really broadened my workplace understanding, multitasking abilities and interpersonal skills. Towards my second year, I wanted to try out working in a corporate working environment. The Campus Career Fair was a big boost to network with talent acquisition executives from various companies, and I was able to secure an interview with multiple of potential employers. I now am proud to be working at the e-commerce giant Talabat as a Business Development Intern.
