    Just today I was in the library and I came across a booklet that addressed graduate destinations after their degree. However, it was not specific at all.
    So I thought I would create this thread where we could all talk about our 'destination' after university. Lol however, I'm not in university yet so this can be for graduates, soon to be graduates and undergraduates!

    I suppose this way people don't have to create threads on 'what career..?'. Many thanks.

    Just wondering, for marketing, buying and merchandising, does the training require exams to study for after uni? Basically I really don't want to do any job that requires lifelong learning or exams after I graduate.
