A Year of Soul Searching – Conor’s New Musical Direction

From a position of uncertainty, Conor is now working hard on a carefully considered plan

Working on retail experience: Conor during a shift at Concern Worldwide


When Conor finished school, he was unsure about where to go and what to do.


He decided to join NOW Group and the VERVE programme, and, within weeks, joined the Loaf Academy to acquire new skills, qualifications and work experience through a placement at Loaf’s The Bobbin café.


Having went through these preparations with considerable aplomb, Conor felt ready to become a member of NOW Group’s Job Club. Here he attended a Skills Group, where he flourished in making new friends and understanding personal strengths, like his natural leadership skills within group settings.

It was also during this period of self-discovery that Conor found he had the confidence to return to education (if he so chose) and had some insights about the steps he might take next. 


First, after completing the Loaf Academy, he took up a new placement at his local charity shop Concern Worldwide, which turned into a permanent voluntary position and the opportunity to further his goal of achieving relevant retail experience.


Then, in September, he made a big decision: he set out to pursue his passion for music by studying a Diploma in Music Production at BMET.


Although a thoroughly busy man these days, Conor continues to apply for paid employment with the Job Club. We wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavours. 


This project is part funded through the Northern Ireland European Social Fund Programme 2014 – 2020 and the Department for the Economy.

What promotion way do you use? Now many have concentrated on online promotion, despite the fact that there are no less effective solutions. I recommend checking out the following website. This is a quality online printing service to create custom paper products such as catalogs. A good way to present your business, services and products. More information about prices, terms and delivery can be found on the Printsafari website.

Patience is basically a great quality. I found myself in music production and sometimes I forget that promotion is a long process. It will take me a lot of time and therefore patience to find my audience. That being said, I think that additional solutions, such as promotion packages by promosoundgroup, can help speed up this process. Specialists will run the campaign, and you just need to pay for the package.

I perfectly understand this state, because I also lived for a long time in a misunderstanding of who I am, what I want to do. Perhaps, here you just need to be patient and try different hobbies, activities to find yourself.

I would like to share something useful with you. It's a free youtube music download service that lets you convert videos to mp3 or mp4 files with a single click. It also has playlists, so you can quickly find the music you want without having to flip through pages of videos. I've used this Tubidy Mp3 Download service myself and think it's awesome. Check it out if you're a musician looking for an easy way to get your favorite songs!
