Wednesday, I woke up to a beautiful, sunshine filled day in Glasgow. I am still having moments when I look around and think “wow, I am living in Scotland!” Still seems surreal at times, especially when I have the opportunity to go to the Scottish Graduate Fair. Some classmates and I made our way to the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Center for the fair.

The ladies at the Lamar University Career and Testing Center would be so proud, I even made a map of who I wanted to speak to and where they would be set up. So, map and CV in hand I made the rounds talking to companies about marketing job opportunities and graduate schemes. No one get excited though, I am not in the process of applying for jobs in the UK. I was more interested in seeing what companies were hiring and what opportunities where available. And after helping with career fairs at LU, I was partially just curious how the career fairs were set up here.
Wednesday also marked my first Rotary CLUB presentation in Scotland! The Hunterston Club was a great start for the year. We had a wonderful, three course meal, heard about some great things they are involved with and learned about projects they are doing. After my presentation, Club President James Morton and I exchanged club banners. My first Rotary Banner Exchange! The Beaumont Rotary Club can be looking forward to adding at least one more banner to their collection!
