If you want to get a head start in your career, you should consider doing work placements in the sector you are interested in. It's a good idea to start early - don't wait until you graduate to gain experience: the job market is extremely competitive and by showing your commitment as soon as you can, you will stand out as someone special.

Be creative when thinking about job placements - use your contacts; take a look at the professional body for your sector, and see what opportunities they offer; use your holidays wisely by putting some time aside to gain experience as well as enjoying your time off.

We advertise hundreds of job placements and other opportunities through our regular mail briefings, as well as CV tips and interview advice.
