Looking for something to do this summer?

I know it’s only just Easter and you might not have started to think about the summer vacation yet! For those of you who haven’t, it’s not too far away and if you think you’re too late to apply for summer internships or summer jobs, think again!  The point of this post is to let you know there are still lots of work opportunities available for the summer that employers are letting us know about, so if you’ve not thought about it yet there’s still time to apply for jobs. We’ve been contacted by employers who have summer internships or summer jobs available now, so you still have time to apply and hopefully secure some work for this summer.

To help with this, we have a few services you may want to check out (and join if appropriate):

  • CareersLink – login to CareersLink to search the vacancies for opportunities. You can search by the job sector, type of role and more. You can set up saved searches or get search results sent by email too.
  • Internships and Work Experience Facebook group – we have a dedicated Facebook group which colleagues in our work experience team update. It’s not subject specific so you’ll see opportunities from a range of employers and job sectors posted, but it’s a great way to find out about things we’ve heard about and they often will signpost vacancies from CareersLink on here too (so you can find out about some you might not always see depending on the search criteria you use in CareersLink).
  • School specific Facebook groups – as well as the internships and work experience group, we’ve got a lot of School specific Facebook groups so you may want to consider joining if you’re not already a member. The things posted on here are going to be more specific than on the dedicated internships and work experience group, so may help if you are looking for ideas/opportunities related to your subject of study. You can see the full list with links on our website.
  • Work Experience Twitter account – feel free to follow our dedicated work experience twitter account, where colleagues post vacancies and news related to all aspects of work experience. They tweet about part-time roles, short-term opportunities and work experience, as well as events which might be useful too.

Hopefully some of these options will help you find something for this summer!
