My advice to students considering work

Ensure that your expectations match reality - talk to as many contacts with experience in work area/profession you are looking at as possible. Find out what people say after 1 year, 3 years, 10 years...

My advice about working in my industry

Read a newspaper and trade publications regularly and get to understand what makes the sector of the economy you are going to focus on (public, utilities, finance) really tick.
