Back to 'School'

With placement finished and a jam packed summer had, this is the point where every final year student realises that they should have begun reading and planning for the D-word, as well as putting some serious thought into where they will head once graduating.

With the constant reminders on how hard it is to get a job in any industry it has got me into a bit of a tiz as to whether I should begin with applying to graduate schemes now, as I had previously intended to take some time out and do some teaching in beautiful foreign lands among other constructive activities (for a comical example of how not to spend a gap year check this out- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKFjWR7X5dU). I am aware that once you are in the rat race it is incredibly hard to 'duck' back out again..but with the economic climate as it is, is it wise to jump on board as soon as possible (pending actually being offered a grad role!)? Any thoughts from both in and out of the PR sector would be great.
