StartProfile

A really good website to start with is Startprofile

Once registered (for free), build your profile by identifying which skills and qualities you are strongest in, these are then “matched” to jobs you maybe suited to in the future. Delve deeper into the information to find out how many opportunities there maybe locally, what other jobs are similar and actual job openings. This “matching” works for some students but not all, as your ideas often change as you develop. However, with this website you can return to your profile time and again, as your skills develop and ideas change.
