You are in the last year of your study and the total focus is on your thesis. More than logical as well, because this is about the most difficult and time consuming thing you have done throughout your study period. However, it is very useful to see what you are going to do after your studies. There are often two types of people to be distinguished in this process. The one would like to study because he or she is not yet in a full-time job or would like to gather more knowledge. The other is extremely happy that all these years are studying and finally getting to work. Or if you don't want to think of both at the moment, you can escape. You can find what possible options after your study in this article.

At a traineeship you go to work but you continue to learn at the same time. So you earn money and get training to work on your personal development. You start by learning a certain specialisation and work in addition. As probably many different teachers have said to you: ' You are never too old to learn ' or ' you are never learned '. This is a remark that you should listen to verve lens, but if you think about it now, you know that that teacher is right. Do you want to specialise with a traineeship or just complement your knowledge with a direction that suits you well? Then a traineeship is an excellent addition for you! Are you not yet learnt and do you often want to gain the necessary experience? Then it is certainly useful to see a traineeship.
Working after your study
Many students are delighted that they can finally put their knowledge into practice after their studies. These students are ready to enter the labour market and are jam with energy to start a new challenge. However, many graduates are at the same problem, which is experience. If you start your first full-time job you don't have it yet, but how do you get this experience when you've just graduated? An option is to work in the industry during your internship or graduation period where you want to work after your studies. So you do all the necessary experience and knowledge to perform a start-up function. Take a marketing job, for example. If you have just graduated and already have experience in this industry, then you already have a dash for it. Is this not what the employer Is looking for in terms of experience? Then take a step back. Start with a job that is just below your level, so do your experience. Do one step back to move forward two steps!
Go for a break!
Are you not yet ready to start working right and want to empty your head after all the hard studying? Go for a break, a half or a year. Get inspired in, for example, a country where you've never been. You can improve your second language abroad or learn a new language. If you find a job abroad, you will learn the language very quickly. Don't want this? Then you are still learning, because with these options you never stand still. You get an awful lot of life experience in return. You may get a whole different view of life, which can help you in your general development and you will learn to know yourself in a very different way!
