FROM UNIVERSITY TO WORK

Print Friendly

This section focuses on strategies and tactics helpful in the transition from university to the world of work: how best to learn from compulsory internships, how to deal with the tensions between being a student and a worker, how to gain work experience and avoid exploitation?

In dealing with these questions, this section collects thoughts and tools which can be mobilised and adapted – both alone and collectively – in order to steer the direction of one’s practice with more agency after graduation.
