It’s never too early to think about what you’re going to do once you’ve graduated – research has proved that work experience is vital and not just preferred by graduate recruiters.

An article in the Times Higher Education (THE) (13 June 2013) indicates that the graduate job search is ‘starting earlier than ever’.  So, if you’re just going into your final year, the summer break could give you the chance to get ahead.
