Every year we see a lot of surprised students who say “but I didn’t know you could help with that”
Your expectations may be low or you may have none at all but I promise you there is likely to be something we can help you with. You pay for this service in your fees so why not check us out.
So what do you do exactly?
Simply put The Careers Service aims to help you get the job or career you will love. There may be many steps along the way but that’s what we want for you.
How will you do that?
- We will provide information that you can tap into at any time on our website. We write the information with you in mind and review the links to make sure they are fit for purpose.
- We provide a drop in advice service 9-5 Monday – Friday* so that you can ask us any question at all. It really doesn’t matter if you think it’s silly or you feel confused, after a quick chat we can usually work out how to help you. (*vacation time 10-4)
- You can get appointments to help you consider your strengths & interests to reveal what you can do after your degree, or even during your degree to get experience.
- We can help with the practical stuff, making sure you are prepared for job applications & interviews.
- You can meet up with employers and alumni at our events to get information and advice on entering different careers.
And a whole lot more … just ask us.
Where are you?
- We have a base in the Atrium 1st Floor University Place. But you may find us doing appointments, drop-ins or lectures in your school.
But I have no idea what I want to do, how will talking to you help?
By helping you explore your interests, skills & strengths, you will find that you are clearer about what matters to you. That’s a good starting point for thinking about your future.
I really don’t want to think about a career after Uni yet.
If you knew how many times we had graduates coming to us and saying they wished someone had made them to this earlier you would get it.
You don’t have to decide on the next 40 years of your life. But making the best use of your time at University can really help widen your options and make you more attractive in the job market. We can give you some ideas about what might be the best things for you to do right now.
