12 12Information Management. Your future career The MSc gives you an edge in a competitive careers market. Recent graduates have taken up posts across a range of employment sectors in roles such as Information Officer, Information Scientist, Information Researcher, Knowledge Assistant, Records System Assistant, Medical Information Officer, Business Information Manager, IT Consultant, Web Designer, Internet Programmer and Service Analyst. Graduates may go on to specialist information management positions such as Chief Information Officer, Information Systems Manager, Knowledge Manager or Corporate Planner. What our graduates say My MSc got me a foot in the interview door for this job. The course was a valuable introduction to the everyday tools of the information profession: online sources, new media and business information. In my current position I am responsible for training VPs on the web. Sheffield was hard work, but it was an enjoyable stepping stone to my current career. My work on the Case Project is a much less traditional library job, promoting and coordinating the sharing of resources with other law librarians across Yorkshire. What I learnt at Sheffield has been invaluable both in terms of the technical skills and awareness of issues. Laura Haddon Faculty Team Librarian for Law/Case Project Information Officer University of Leeds I did the MSc part time over two years while working in the University s Medical School as an IT Coordinator. I am currently engaged as a software developer on a project to build a web-based application to deliver further education based courses online via the web. The dissertation project I undertook for my MSc was directly relevant to the work I am doing now.
