Some students already have a firm career plan, but most are still deciding between options.
If you are still deciding on your options, read our tips for identifying and exploring career options - there is plenty of information there and tips to help you get started.
If that doesn’t help, book an appointment to speak with a Careers Consultant.
Don’t feel that you have to have one career in mind, it’s often more useful to have a shortlist so that you can be flexible with opportunities that arise.
