I FINALLY GRADUATED WITH A DISTINCTION IN MY COPYWRITING DIPLOMA!
For those of you who follow me on social media, you’ll have recently learnt that I had some great news last Easter Monday. After 181 days of doing an online CMP(College of Media and Publishing) Level 4 Diploma in Copywriting, I got the news that I had passed with a DISTINCTION grade.
I am over-the-moon because I gave it absolutely everything I had. I put my heart and soul into it. I am a perfectionist by nature and so had set my heart on getting a Distinction. I am not going to lie to you, I would have been pretty gutted if I had not got a Distinction.
I enjoyed the course that much that I would now love a career as a Copywriter. As the course progressed I sort of fell in love with it(sounds a bit strange perhaps)? I love writing and so got such a buzz at completing the assignments. Copywriting really does feel like my true calling in life.
I have to congratulate CMP for putting together such a fabulous course. It was challenging at times for me, but always felt challenging in a good way. At times it really stretched me and I loved this about it.
My tutor Lucy was incredible with me. She was constantly helpful, encouraging and supportive. Her expert guidance made me believe in myself more. I messaged her numerous times to say I was struggling with my latest assignment, only for her words of help to give me that final push in attempting to write it. Lucy’s constructive criticisms have now made me become a better writer without a shadow-of-a-doubt. I owe Lucy a lot, thank you!
There are too many other people to individually thank in this blog(and it would get boring to read me just listing names), for the support and encouragement they showed me during my time doing this course. If you are one of these people then I truly cannot thank you enough.
The original plan post-passing my course, was to then go back to my old uni careers department and ask them for some help with me looking for a Junior Copywriter job. However, the current circumstances with the coronavirus situation mean this will have to be postponed for the time being. I have therefore decided to do another online course with the CMP. To compliment my Copywriting one, I’ve decided to do a SEO(Search Engine Optimisation) content writing course.
Doing another course is a great way to improve my CV further, as well as helping with my mental health. Regarding the latter, positive mind occupation is a key coping strategy I use with my contamination OCD.
I just wanted to socially document this latest academic achievement in my life by doing a short blog about it. I came, I saw and I conquered my Copywriting course dreams. Now it is time for the next chapter, now it is time to conquer even more!
