When you first go off to university, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, you may think to yourself: "This is it. I'll learn how to be a proper adult here." Then, as you relax at home after graduation, you'll quickly learn that there are many things about the real world that you are still woefully unprepared for.

Even the word is enough to provoke fight or flight. There are many reasons a thesis inspires such dread, including how much of your final grade it amounts to and the sheer size of the task (did you say TEN THOUSAND WORDS?). With so many concerns to address, it can be easy to forget the first and most fundamental question.

Interviews can be scary. Whether it’s your first time or your tenth, there's you're being forced to prove your worth against another 100 other applicants; that's a lot of competition!
