You could be forgiven for thinking that a spot at University (and the degree that comes attached should you put the hours in) guarantees you subsequent employment in your selected industry, and there was a time where this assumption would have been generally correct. As with everything, however, an increase in prevalence results in a decrease in value and unfortunately for soon-to-graduates and freshers alike, the number of degrees in today’s job-market have sky-rocketed.
So, in a world where hundreds of graduates are going for exactly the same position, what can you do to stand out from the crowd? Get work experience, and lots of it:
As usual, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line if you’ve got any burning questions or queries, and I’ll be back before the summer’s out to tell you how to prepare for the inevitable – leaving home for University, for the first time.
Until then, enjoy the sun!
