  • Get started: use this to work with students in their early stage career exploration. Contains gradireland #GradStories video and career path content, and houses the Careers Report. The Careers Report is an online career planning tool, with built-in psychometric tests, to help students identify their most suitable careers. Outputs include a list of suggested careers which links to 300 job descriptions on the site. This is a useful exercise for students to undertake prior to an advice session with a careers adviser.
