As promised. Turned into a really interesting 7 page (!) discussion. Panel was a mixture of graduate recruitment managers (Centrica, Grant Thornton), careers consultants with real world experience, the chief executive of the Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR), and specialist graduate recruitment consultants.
Nice person that I am I thought I’d break it down in to a more digestible size for you. Read here. It’s structured as well.
1) PRE MASTERS
- Your motivation
- Your research into potential options
- The employer’s perspective
2) DURING MASTERS
3) POST MASTERS
For those writing up their Masters dissertations now as well as researching and preparing job apps the third section is a must read.
