Summer can be time to take a break, time to reflect on the past year, and also to consider: which way next?

If you’re starting to think about your future direction after your degree, we have some resources to get you started:

Prospects: What can I do with my degree?

This helpful website suggests jobs directly related to your degree, jobs where you degree would be useful, and reminds you of the specific and more general transferable skills you will have acquired through your studies – useful for any job application.

 
You can get ideas by looking at the career stories of graduates from your department in York Profiles and Mentors.  You need a York log in  and will be able to read case studies, ask questions and even request a period of individual mentoring if you feel that would help you.

Enjoy your summer!
