Careers Advice

The Employability team is here to support students and graduates with all aspects of career planning & decision making, along with helping you to recognise and develop your employability skills.

This can be anything from career planning and understanding options with your degree, writing CVs and applications, developing a good on-line presence, help with interviews, and applying for further study (including teacher training), to searching for jobs and getting part-time work, understanding how to make the most of graduate fairs, and plenty more!

Not sure where to start? It it's not convenient to pop in and have an initial chat with one of our Careers Information Officers, a good first port of call is to see if there is some information or an on-line resource that helps you out. You might then want to see if there is a workshop or event that relates to what you are interested in. For confidential, 1-1 help and guidance you can then book an appointment to talk to one of our Careers Consultants. Of course, you can always ask us a question, drop us an email, check out our Facebook and Twitter accounts or have a look at some careers related Frequently Asked Questions. We're always keen to get student feedback on our service, to help us improve for the future.  

Further Information

What is employability anyway?
Often talked about, but not always very well explained! In simple terms, employability is about making sure that you have the skills, experience and attributes that employers are looking for in a graduate. Our FAQ on Employability will explain everything you need to know.
Do you need help with placements?

If you need help with placements, you can get in touch with the Placement Office for your Faculty. Go to Placement Information for the contacts for your Faculty.

What kind of things do you help with?
It's nearly impossible to list everything we can help with but here are some examples of common topics. You'll find workshops that cover many of these topics, or you can discuss them as an individual in a careers appointment. Most of these are links to on-line resources too:

CVs & applications, interviews, assessment centres & psychometric tests, networking, LinkedIn, further study, getting into teaching, career planning, options with your degree, changing course, graduate job search, working overseas, understanding employability, researching employers, gaining skills & experience, part-time work
