Job search
Welcome to this Futures workbook on finding work. It is split into several sections describing different techniques for finding work. You can dip in and out of the different sections; however it is not wise to rely on only one mechanism for finding work. It is a competitive market for final year students and new graduates and so you should try many alternate ways to find work.

The populist model of start-ups suggests an original stroke of technical and entrepreneurial insight, but this is misleading. The reality is a rather more interesting story of successive engineering responses to customer demand and competi
