Whether you’re a first or final year student, it’s never too early to start planning for your career. We hope the fact that you have chosen an industry-relevant degree with us means that you have given some thought to which industry you want to work in. But even if you’re not entirely sure of your direction, don’t panic. Co-operative / Careers Division is here to help. See our services here.
Knowing yourself is the first step to defining your goals and options. What are your strengths and weaknesses? What skills do you have? What are your interests and priorities?
Once you have defined your interests, it is time to find out more about your chosen industry. What is the economic outlook and hiring trend? What skills does your dream job require? Are there any areas outside your industry that you want to explore?
Now that you have a clearer idea of the companies and roles that you wish to pursue, you need to brush up your work and job-seeking skills.
You’re all prepared, now go out and make yourself visible to employers.
