• The Path Less Travelled

    In one of my first blog posts for Inside Edge, ‘Am I too old to go to uni?’, I wrote a little about my decision to come to uni at the age of 23 in an attempt to reassure everyone that it is never too late (and you are never too old) to pursue your […]

  • Job opportunities galore

    Hey all, hope you’re having a great weekend so far. I wanted to make a post on the many job opportunities in and around Edge Hill, as I think it’ll be of interest to a lot of people, especially if you’re self funding your course or living costs. One of the things I love the most […]

  • Improving Your CV at EHU

    As I’m sure you’ve been told many times before, your CV is an important document, and making sure it is well fleshed out is part of what makes a good CV.

Jobs for students tend […]

  • Sorting out the future

    Over the past few weeks, since finishing my course I have been spending my time wisely in that I have been looking for and applying for jobs within the health care sector and likewise with apprenticeships, as I feel an apprenticeship maybe easier to get for the short-to medium term than a job. Whilst I […]

  • What am I going to do?

    I think when it comes to picking a career path we are all a little bit lost. Well, I am, and to make myself feel better I’m going to say that you are too. I’ve been thinking a lot recently about what to do after uni. Sooner or later I’m going to have to start getting some […]
