Explore and Develop
We help students and graduates explore their career options.
We have information on our website, online courses and live webinars to help students think more deeply about their skills, experience, motivations and also to explore future career/study options open to them with their degree.
We provide information on and suggest opportunities for part-time work, volunteering, placements/internships to help students and graduates develop skills and career confidence.
We have lots of information and advice about how to apply for jobs, and be successful at interviews or other assessment activities. Not only do we advertise vacancies but we get employers onto (virtual) campus for recruitment fairs and other events so students and graduates can meet them.
mySkills is an innovative way for current students to assess, record, build and reflect on their own skills. Their profile and record of personal development will be unique to them and will be invaluable in creating their CV and strengthening job applications and interview performance.
The mySkills webpage provides students with further information. There is also a video for you to gain an insight into how mySkills works
