Employability Health Check

Discover and Decide

Discover and Decide is designed to support students who have an idea about what they might like to do, but haven’t gained much experience, or who haven’t looked at how to get to their dream job. This section empowers you to plan realistic steps to achieve your goals, understand which employers are out there and what they are looking for, and identify ways of reaching out to employers to get experience or employment.
