Yep, the title pretty much says it all. I’ve had rather a lot of difficulty finding a graduate job for when I finish university this summer. Scratch that, I’ve found loads of jobs, just none of them want to extend me an invite to one of their interviews, even after I spend near five hours on most of the applications. A major bank denied me thirty minutes after I sent off my application. This was at midnight, so no-one must have read my application. I was turned down by a machine. Boo.
Anyway, instead of being a stereotypical whiny graduate I am actually going to do something. I have used some of my last instalment of student loan to set this up. I have a website and as of Thursday I will have stock on the website. I have worked hard on this, it has been in my head for nearly a year now. I don’t want to always be working in entry level jobs and I actually want some responsibility in my career, I crave it.
I will be selling accessories for the time being, until I make enough to rent out a proper storage space. Once this joyous day arrives I will be branching out into clothes and larger textile items. My goal is to have a business I can live off and enjoy running, and feel good about. It’s my brain child and I have spent many an hour staring at html code trying to make sense of it.
So, my dear reader(s) this is the website Unicorn Wardrobe
I also have a Facebook Page and Twitter
Why, Unicorn Wardrobe I hear you mutter in a bemused tone? Well it is a whimsical name and much less self absorbed than my original idea, which was my name. It also has a retro-y feel to it, which is where I would like to eventually lead my ranges.
My aim is to offer a good range of items that appeal to all styles and tastes, and while I may not be there with my first box of stock, I certainly hope that within a year I can achieve this. I will be offering the best possible prices to give customers the best value for money and hopefully encourage some to return.
So, here’s to my latest venture and let’s hope it goes well
P.S. I would really like to hear from anyone running their business, online or in reality, any tips or criticism is brilliant
