    I’m coming to the end of my final year at uni and am starting to panic. I think I’m going to get a first and I go to a good Russell group uni but I’m worried I’ll struggle to get a job. In terms of experience I worked at a law firm for a year but that’s it, I’m not even reallly sure what I want to do and lack experience generally. Am I going to really struggle when Uni ends to get a job?

    The work experience will help. But what makes you employable is your attitude and your soft skills - it’s impossible to tell what they are like in a post on a forum.

    I did make some applications for graduate jobs but didn’t really know what I wanted to do, nothing came of most of them and some of the ones I got invited to an assessment centre but rejected as it wasn’t what I wanted. Think people on here make too big a deal out of grad jobs anyway so I’ll probably just apply for jobs normally.
