We hope you have enjoyed our series of articles focused on career advice for students. We started discussing the future of jobs and careers, talked through some exercises to help students think about where they would like to start, and in our last piece we focused on trying to bridge the gap between student expectations and work realities.

In our final article, we will focus on the one big subject that remains –how do you find a job?
