Studying for your degree but starting to think about what you’d like to do when you graduate? Choosing a career path can feel like entering a maze – not only are you not sure which direction to go in, you’re not quite sure if there’s going to be anything you want at the centre when you reach it.
Speaking to graduates who have already navigated the maze, and started their careers can be really useful – their experiences can help you decide upon the right direction for you.
We asked Chris Hill, who graduated with a degree in Aerospace Engineering graduate from the University of Southampton in June 2019, to share his story below.
“I joined Frazer-Nash Consultancy in September of 2019, straight out of uni. I’d heard about the company at a talk from a member of staff during the second year of my aerospace engineering degree. Lots of people on my course had a specific job role in mind, but I didn’t, so I was drawn to the variety that consultancy offered. I didn’t want to get stuck on one long-term piece of work, I wanted to broaden my expertise by working on lots of different projects.
