If you’re about to graduate and wondering what to do next, read this post! Listen to my take on your position “the world is your oyster and you are the future of our profession, don’t be restricted by traditional constraints, consider you passion and think outside the box”, then consider joining our volunteer team at Physiopedia on a temporary basis, we will help you on the path to finding your dream job!
I was recently asked to present at the PhysioFeasta gathering of final year students in Ireland. The aim of the event was to increase awareness of all of the options available to students post-graduation, and to encourage them to think more innovatively about their careers – essentially giving them ideas on how to bridge the gap to employment. I was asked to contribute to the session about innovation and expanding the scope of practice, something that I am certainly well versed in and very pleased to talk about! Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend the day but did manage to make a short video for the participants:
Now is the time as a final year student about to graduate that you should be thinking about what you are going to do next, how are you going to get your dream job. As I said in the video, my advice to you is to make the most of this time that you have free after you have completed your studies. Think about what it is you want to do, what is your passion, and find a learning or professional development opportunity that encompasses that. What ever it is that you end up doing will stand out on your CV, because it’s your passion!
There are several volunteering and intern opportunities available at Physiopedia this summer and it’s at this time of year that we welcome new graduates to our team. We will match you to a role that you will not only enjoy but you will also learn, professionally develop and have something to stand out on your CV!
