Your Career Choices

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 if you begin to plan long before you graduate.

There are two important areas for you to consider.

1. What are your skills and strengths
2. What career areas are open to you

Your options

Many careers, in finance, IT, management, social care etc. are open to graduates of any subject, provided they have the transferable skills the employers need.

Other careers require students to have studied a relevant subject at undergraduate level, and yet others will require you to take a relevant postgraduate qualification.

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.

Computerised guidance programmes such as Prospect are also available to help you work through your options.
