Find out ways to build your experience, challenge yourself and expand your skills
While work experience including part-time work and internships is a great way to develop your skills it’s not the only sort of experience which counts! Employers are looking for people who have a breadth of interests and skills as well as a good degree.
Volunteering, activities outside your degree, and focused programmes like SAChA will all contribute to building your skills, broadening your outlook, and increasing your self-awareness.
