Hello to all you finalists out there!
You’re just coming to the end of your last university vacation. The next bit of time off you get will be when you’ve finished this degree. I’m sure for some of you this is great relief (I remember six years ago I couldn’t wait to get the last lot of exams done so I could stop feeling so guilty every time I watched TV or went out for a drink rather than working on the dreaded dissertation or revision), but for some of you the end of the undergraduate studies might feel a bit daunting.
Sometimes beginning to make plans can help to hold off the feeling of rising panic, so it might be a good idea to take a look at the Manchester Graduate Internship Programme. The 2010/11 programme is now open and vacancies are already open, some with starting dates as early as June this year. Internships are based in Manchester and are for up to a year, providing a really good opportunity to gain experience and a foot on the ladder of your chosen career, as well as allowing you to stay in this great city!
