From Work Placement to Employment

  • Christine Fanthome
Part of the Palgrave Study Guides book series (PASTSK)


The process of locating, securing and attending a work placement is effectively a micro jobsearch experience. This means that students who have completed a work placement are in a very advantageous position when it comes to seeking employment after graduation. All the relevant skills required to find and undertake work have already been brought to the fore and tested, and hopefully, the student has developed both personally and professionally due not only to the work placement experience itself, but also as a result of the learning outcomes from each stage of the procedure. This chapter will focus on finding employment after graduation, and in so doing it will revisit some of the key observations and findings from earlier chapters.
