Week at the Royal Dick School of Veterinary Studies.
I’m sure most of you have heard of Dolly the Sheep. Dolly was a sheep the first mammal to be cloned from an adult cell. I was working on the campus where the Roslin institute is in Edinburgh. The Royal Dick school of Veterinary medicine is an incredible place to work. And I was there for a week. You must be wondering why on earth is a classicist there? But I was working in the marketing team. It was so interesting. I learnt how the university alongside with the vet school brand themselves and form international relations with other universities and even governments to standardise the practice of veterinary medicine on a global scale. Understanding how the university presents its self and how the dick school conducts its teaching and clinical practice is important in order to bring more prosperous vets. One key thing I learnt about my time there is that classicists are valuable within the working world. We bring a completely different insight to the table, we analyse and see things differently. The creative aspects of our degree enrich our careers because we have unique abilities and skills that employers are searching for. We have a lot to offer, you just need to build the confidence and focus that any job you put your mind to you can master. Everyone is always learning, you grow in your career and having a stable foundation of your classics degree is going to make you a powerful candidate within the workforce. Be happy within yourself and understand your skills are valuable in many fields, you just need to see where they bloom.
