Book Description

Thousands of students graduate from university each year. The lucky few have the rest of their lives mapped out in perfect detail – but for most, things are not nearly so simple. Armed with your hard-earned degree the possibilities and career paths lying before you are limitless, and the number of choices you suddenly have to make can seem bewildering.

Life After a Business and Administrative Studies Degree has been written specifically to help students currently studying, or who have recently graduated, make informed choices about their future. It will be a source of invaluable advice and wisdom to business graduates, covering such topics as:

  • Identifying career paths that interest you
  • Seeking out an opportunity that matches your skills and aspirations
  • Staying motivated and pursuing your goals
  • Networking and self-promotion
  • Making the transition from scholar to worker

The Life After University series of books are more than simple ‘career guides’. They are unique in taking a holistic approach to career advice - recognising the increasing view that, although a successful working life is vitally important, other factors can be just as essential to happiness and fulfilment. They are the indispensable handbooks for students considering their future direction.
