Career planning and job hunting

Does it seem like everyone around you knows exactly what they want to do with their life?

The myth that all LSE students (apart from you) are on the pathway to their dream job isn't true. As for the other myth that LSE Careers can only help those who know what they want to do - we wouldn't be writing this if that was the case.

You may never have had a 'career plan' because you chose to study a course based on academic interest, or you might have just been enjoying your time at university, leaving planning until after you finish your course.

The important thing is that you are now thinking about your career and reading this section of our website. You should also try to stop worrying - that in itself can prevent you from moving forward successfully.

This section has a range of tools to help you start taking the first steps in the decision making process whilst offering practical advice about how to do this in an effective manner. We encourage you to come and see us at LSE Careers at any point during this process. Good luck and enjoy the journey!
