Final Year, Future You

FYFY 300.jpg

You’re in the final year of your degree. It could be your third year, maybe your fourth or even your fifth – depending on what you’re studying and whether you spent a year abroad or in industry. What matters is that graduation is only a few months away, so now is the time to really concentrate on your career search (without, obviously, compromising your study and revision!).

As you launch yourself into the job market, or prepare for further study, you’ll need to be clear about:

  • What skills and experience you have
  • What you want to achieve
  • What employers and institutions want
  • Which roles or courses you are interested in
  • How you can tailor your applications to demonstrate your skills and experience.

The Future You Fair on campus on 27 March 2019 is a great way to take that important first step towards your post-graduation life. It’s three events in one.

  • Careers Fair: meet prospective employers from different industries, with a range of live vacancies on offer
  • Postgraduate Fair: find out about studying for a Masters at Leicester
  • Alternative Careers Fair: explore creative career opportunities, courtesy of Attenborough Arts.

You can attend, one, two or all three events. But whichever path you choose, the important thing is to be prepared, to know your strengths and development areas, and to have focus. Book your place here.

Remember: it’s a lot easier to find something if you know what you’re looking for.
