helpWell, you may be curious about the jobs that graduates from your course have gone into?  Or you may like some help to decide what career would suit you?  You may have already looked at the Options with your degree sheets on the Prospects website, and would now like to get a wider perspective?   You can find the ‘destinations’ of  graduates in January 2014 on the Higher Education Careers Service Unit (HECSU) site.

So.. what have Brunel grads gone on to do?  Take a look.

PCC staff are happy to talk things though with you. Give it a try…

The Prospects profile will tell you in detail about each job – typical work activities, salary and conditions, entry requirements, training, career development, typical employers and links to sources of vacancies (including specialist recruitment agencies for that job sector).

Also included are case studies from people who tell you about their own experiences so you get a view from a real person in a real role.

There are about 400 job profiles on the Prospects website, giving you an insight into all kinds of jobs.  Just choose the job profile you want to view.
