Generating Options

There are a huge variety of career option for graduates, especially in the UK where so many graduate recruiters do not demand a particular degree subject. 

Despite this, when it comes to thinking of options for your future, sometimes it can be hard to come up with anything at all.  Find out more about how to generate career ideas that might be right for you in our short guide to 'Getting careers inspiration'.

Our short guide How to Change your Career has option generating ideas that are as useful for graduates beginning their careers as those changing direction. 

Online Careers matching tools

There are a number of tools to help you think about what you want from a career.  The programmes match you to potential roles based on what you enjoy doing, what skills you have and what motivates you.  The following are all good ways of generating ideas that you may never have thought of before and allow you to learn more about the options of interest.

Engage with employers

A great way of learning more about the type of opportunities that might appeal to is to try engage with employers through careers fairs, presentations and short careers courses.  Find out more about the our employer events programme....
