A-z of careers

Careers huh?

That's right, careers.

If you're thinking about the sorts of things you might want to do when you leave education, whether that's after compulsory study, after a degree, or even after postgraduate education, then you need to think careers. There are a vast number of possible careers and it can be hard to know what route to aim down, no matter how old you are. Below you will find links to a number of career profiles. Each aims to tell you a little bit about the possible careers within that industry sector. Feel free to edit them if they're incorrect and update them with your own expereiences!

Please also feel free to add more specific job profiles, or breaking down one of the categories, for example "marketing" or "construction", by starting a brand new article for the career you know about!
