firstpoint’s five points about life after your course ends…

Every Monday, firstpoint publishes five points about a topic related to life at university. This week, for many of our students, their course is coming to an end, so here are a few thoughts…
POINT ONE: ONE STEP AT A TIME…

What you do now is not necessarily what you will always do. The next few years are a chance to explore different options and ideas.

POINT TWO: A POSITIVE APPROACH

Stress and worries are normal but how we respond can impact on our wellbeing. Be kind to yourself if things go wrong and focus on realistic goals that provide a sense of achievement.

POINT THREE: A MARATHON NOT A SPRINT…

You might not step into your ideal job straight away. It takes time to develop skills and experiences. Keep going and learn from everything you do.

POINT FOUR: YOU’RE NOT ALONE…

Keep in touch with friends and course mates but try not to compare yourself to them. We all have our own paths to tread and stories to tell!

POINT FIVE: WE’RE STILL HERE TO HELP…

The Careers and Employability Service can help you for three years after leaving, whether you need to talk through ideas, develop a plan to find work or ask for application advice. Find out more my visiting the myCareer portal.
