Planning your Career
We encourage you to focus on your career as early as possible. The timetable below is designed to give you the best possible start.
July – Focus on Yourself!
Effective job hunting is about having an idea of what you want from a job. Therefore, you need to think about the types of activities you want to engage in, the level of contact with people you want, the financial remuneration you are seeking etc. Think of it as putting together a shopping list; that will give you an objective criterion to identify the right job for you.
Consider doing Prospects Planner, a tool designed to help you figure out what jobs you are suited to.
August – Investigate Options
So, now you know what you have to offer an employer and understand what you are looking for in your future role. The next step is to investigate available opportunities and consider gaining some work experience. Research is an essential part of the career choice process. The more you know about a particular option, the easier it is to evaluate it.
You may want to consider undertaking an internship or work experience to build up your CV.
September – Get Ready for Applications Most employers start advertising Graduate Training Schemes from September onwards, Have a look at the Milkround website and make a list of application deadlines.
