The student's perspective

The student's perspective

Work experience is an oppurtunity to try out jobs and find out what type of role would suit you after graduation. It is also the major route into finding graduate work. More than a third of of sandwich placement students go on to work for the same employer permanently (Source: Incomes Data Service, 2005).

To make the most of your work experience it is important to consider what you can learn from each of the following categories. Choose two or three outcomes which are important for you from the list. You can then note them down and use them as the basis for a personal work experience action plan.
