While you study it’s essential to prepare yourself for employment by researching the areas that interest you and developing the skills and attributes that will help you to begin and maintain a successful graduate-level career.

Depending on your interests, you might want to look for a job within an organization, to work for yourself on a freelance or contract basis, or to start up your own business. You could also move between these options at different points in your career. The skills and attributes that make you employable will almost certainly be relevant whether you are working for an organization, freelancing, or running your own business.

The most important thing is that you start out as well-prepared as possible for the challenges ahead.
