It may be that you already have
a very clear idea about the career you wish to follow, but many
students have at best a very vague idea of what is available
and possible for them. It will help your long-term prospects

There are two important areas for
you to consider.
1. What are your skills and strengths
2. What career areas are open to you

Information about all of these types
of work is available in your careers service. You will find
information in reference files, in the AGCAS series of information
booklets, and in a range of other take-away publications such
as the Hobsons series of Casebooks.

such as Prospect are also available to help you work through
