How does the Careers Service Support our graduates?

We can offer support whether you have a clear career plan or none. For the frist two years after you graduate this includes access to:

  • MyCareerHub – where you can ask us questions, search for vacancies, sign up for our events, and access resources to help you understand yourself better
  • Individual appointments - with our team of Careers Consultants throughout the year (also available via Skype/Telephone)
  • Events - we run a full and varied events calendar, many of which are available online - check out the "Events" tab of MyCareerHub to see details.

 

Not sure what your next steps might be?

  • This is very common and can feel really overwhelming as a recent graduate - start with our career planning resources, but you can also book an appointment to talk it through with us.
  • Find out what options there are with your degree, as well as destinations of past graduates, from our school-specific pages.

Have a career in mind, but not sure how to get there?

  • You can get information on a wide range of career areas on our website.
  • Attend employer events in your field of interest (all advertised via MyCareerHub).
  • Use Platform 1 to get advice from alumni working in different industries.

Unsure how to find a graduate job?

  • Not all graduate jobs come in the form of a graduate scheme - full advice on finding a range of graduate vacancies, including applying for unadvertised jobs, can be found on our website.
