1 What’s out there? Finding job vacancies
In Week 3 you looked at what was going on in your industry sector and heard from employers in STEM about the latest and upcoming trends in these sectors.
Developing an understanding of the sector you intend to pursue work in, coupled with a consideration of the companies and organisations within a specific locality, will improve your chances of successfully finding employment. The availability of jobs can depend on which area you live in, especially if you are wanting to work in a specific sector. You may want to take another look at the notes you made in Week 3, and refresh your knowledge about what opportunities are likely to be coming up in your own industry sector, and look again at the links provided in the Further reading page.
