New academic year, new Alternative Careers committee members. Thank you so much Janis Wong for all the wonderful blogposts last year, but its time to pass the torch to our new blogger Clara Rupf, 2nd year International Relations and History student. Here's her little introduction :)
Welcome to the Alternative Careers Blog!
In this space, I aim to do several things: first, to unpick myths about the job market, second, to discuss specific challenges facing certain groups (e.g. women), and third, to pass on advice (CV-related, for instance) from insiders. The tone of this blog tries to be self help-oriented, analysing mindsets and practical tips that you can easily implement.
This blog is designed for both informative and motivational purposes. It offers a springboard for students to think outside the confines of the traditional job market.
The themes discussed by this blog are, of course, open to suggestion and influence – feel free to send any particular requests and/or topic submissions my way, to email@example.com
