    I'm a Business Management student at the University of East Anglia. I'm currently interning for a company called Zealify which I'm really enjoying but it's making me wonder what I want to do when I finish uni? Can I find out what everyone else wants to do for inspiration? I'm thinking marketing as it's what my internship is focused on but I'm not sure!

    I hope to become a clinical child psychologist and places on the doctorate to become a clinical or educational psychologist tend to be extremely competitive yes. I think they have a couple thousand applications for only a few hundred places a year. I intend on building up my experience throughout the next few years which I hope will at least give me a good chance of getting a place.

    Have you considered doing a masters in your subject?

    Thats sou,sounds fantastic. Good luck! Getting experience is definitely the best into anything so I think you are going he right way about it.

    Id love to do a masters but ideally I want to find a company who will fund me as I don't think I could afford it myself. I've heard you can't get a student loan for a masters do you know if this is true?

    Haha! I absolutely love that! I suppose I've got that ambition deep down. There's not enough woman taking the lead in business. If you look at the CEO's of the FTSE 100 top companies only a handful are women, it's shocking really.

    where do you study?

    Ohh brilliant! I once considered going into to social work as I have some experience in the health and social care sector but I backed out at last minute as I doubted how emotionally strong I am. I have so much respect for people who can do those roles. Good luck!

    Arre you you doing a degree in social work or another subject?

    Thank you, what kind of experience do you have in the health & social care sector? I have just completed BA Politics/Philosophy and graduated with a 2.1, I am taking a year out to obtain some experience and strengthen my CV before I apply for an MA. Yeah, I really would love to work in the social field, helping others has always been my forte, thus doing it as a career would be amazing. At times I have doubted whether I can get a job in the sector due to the large influx of females in social work, however, somebody suggested that it could work in my favour:dontknow:

    So what kind of work are you doing at Zealify

    Thank you!

    Yeah, some universities offer a few funding options including bursaries/scholarships depending on your situation. I'd take a loot around on different university websites for a masters you're interested in and see what they say.

    I still have wait until August to find out if I'm going to uni or not but after, I'll hopefully be going on to read biology and will come out with a MSci degree in Environmental Biology.

    I love animals and nature and want to work outdoors so I'm (at the moment) really liking the idea of working for the IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature).

    I also want to travel and move to America so hopefully, during my summers, I'll try to volunteer abroad to get experience and to see the world :awesome:

    I know I probably shouldn't plan so far ahead but I'm a dreamer
