“I am currently working with NHS Lothian. My Dundee degree prepared me for various things starting from researching about my dissertation to finding answers about various life problems. The University gave me opportunity to attend seminars for free or for a discount. My advice to new students is don't just hunt for a job from day one. Take help from the University career guidance department get some experience by doing volunteering.”
