A short but perfectly formed post today... I have been contemplating 'choices'. As a fellow Gen Y'er I know that we have grown up in an age of instant gratification... We want it all, and now! And, for the most part whatever we have chosen has been available to us on a plate. Our personal life choices are met, which ultimately creates our future expectations as the ideas we have continue to elevate our thinking/desires/needs.
When it comes to jobs however, we need to have more of a considered plan. Focus and direction would not go-a-miss. Planning ahead as early as you can, will help refine what the future looks like for you. Use this time to consider the choices you have; tailor your applications, analyse the offers and choose the direction you wish to take.
It may not be entirely in your own hands but you still have overall control over the final choice... Go forth, and most of all, enjoy!
