Careers with this subject

Advice from graduate Ellie Timbrell:

" I would say to anyone trying to get in to the same line of work that the subject of your degree should not limit what type of job you go for, but to transfer the skills you have learnt and to work as hard as possible to get the grade you deserve. Large companies want to be able to see that you have the work ethic and bags of enthusiasm to bring to the company and the role. "
