What does it mean to transition in your career?

Transitions will happen at multiple points in your university journey. For example:

  • Moving from one year of study to the next
  • Beginning a summer internship
  • Undertaking a year abroad or industrial placement
  • Graduating and finding work
  • Progressing to further study
  • Starting your own business
  • Going back to your career full-time
  • Looking for a promotion and preparing for a new role
