Turn Your Degree into a Career: A Step-by-step Guide to Achieving Your Dream Career - Michael Collins; Benjamin Scott (Paperback) 01-03-2003
The graduate of ten years ago started work armed with nothing more than a degree. With over 40 per cent of school leavers studying at higher education, you now need much more to impress a potential employer. Whatever you studied at university, you still have a wide choice of potential careers. The subject of your degree doesn't have to determine your career direction. What is important is how you go about getting that career. "Turn your Degree into a Career" covers everything you need to turn yourself from graduate to professional. It explores how you can decide upon your ideal career - what careers you might enjoy, what skills you want to use, and where you want to work. It deals with researching your career, and how to supercharge your CV with a year out. All the basics are covered including how to write application forms, CVs and covering/speculative letters that really work. You'll find useful information on preparing for a successful interview, dealing with aptitude tests and assessment centres, notes on pursuing post-graduate qualifications, as well as tips for survival in the world of work.
