Career Planning Question
In the career planning questions you will need to show you have thought about the type of employer you want to work for immediately after graduating and have researched your target organization (s) and role.
You will also need to demonstrate you have the necessary skills and experience to succeed in your chosen role.
If planning to set up your own business, you will need to outline what expertise or product your business will deliver and that you have researched the market.
Whilst we want our students to hit the ground running, we understand that you will also be looking to develop gaps in your skillset to prepare for your chosen career and you will need to address this in the career planning questions.
