My Answer

MY ANSWER LOGO“What are you going to do after uni?”.

It’s a question you hear time and time again across campus.

There is a standard set of replies that normally follow the dreaded question. “No idea”, “haven’t got a clue”, “don’t ask” and “god knows” are amongst the most popular.

If you find yourself in this rather sticky situation, you will be pleased to know you are not the first, nor will you be the last.

My Answer is a series of guest blogs that aims to show you what other graduates did next and how you could go on to find YOUR answer to THAT question.
