What is a graduate job?

Applying for jobs while studying can be overwhelming, so it’s important to take things one step at a time. Taking note of upcoming application and submission deadlines is useful. Don’t put pressure on yourself or compare your process to your peers. Allow yourself to unwind if it gets too stressful.
