When you’re about to set out on your University career, it’s easy to think of getting a job and building a career as tasks for tomorrow. But the reality is that you’re shaping your life every single day, and the more opportunities you explore now, the sooner you’ll reach the end of the rainbow!
Choosing your career path doesn’t have to be as simple as picking a job and gunning for it though. Our new Employment Zone is bursting at the seams with employers, agencies and opportunities for you to explore, examine and grasp with both hands. Not to mention we’re not forgetting to include a whole range of fun, character-building experiences that help you grow.
Kaya Responsible Travel is just one company who’ll help you span the continents. With more than 200 volunteer projects and work experience placements available across 20 countries and four continents, they have the perfect solution for anyone who wants to experience new places and cultures while developing vital skills for the future.
Bridging the gap, and taking up a sizeable chunk of our Employment Zone, is the European Commission’s Youth on the Move initiative, which offers travel, study and employment opportunities across the European Union. Perfect for those who want to develop their careers without committing for the long-term, or for those who want to travel abroad without straying too far from home.
Youth on the Move also offers some excellent grants and support packages to ensure you make the most of your time abroad, without worrying about logistics and finance (unless that’s your chosen field!).
Of course, if you are looking for some stability, we’ve got plenty of employers who are keen to recruit students for their graduate schemes and internships. The British Army, Police Scotland and Golden Charter are all on the lookout for young talent to reinvigorate their organisations. So head on over to their stalls and get ready to be buttered up and plied with freebies, because you’re in demand!
