Support for students and graduates
Need some help?
The Careers Service provides a full information, guidance and support service for all our students, researchers and those who graduated within the last three years from the University of Sheffield. Those graduates who have subsequently registered at another UK Higher Education Institution, who should use the services of that institution.
Got a question?
The Information Team is the first point of contact and can answer many of your career questions. You can call in and speak to us whenever the service is open, whatever your query.
Use Career Connect via MUSE to book an appointment
We offer individual advice sessions to help you explore career options, find and apply for opportunities, handle job offers and everything in between. Appointments are available to book online via Career Connect and can be booked in advance or on the day.
Please turn up on time - if you are more than 5 minutes late we will not be able to see you as this causes delays for other students.
If you would like us to review your CV / covering letter / application form / personal statement please bring a paper copy as this makes it easier to record comments and suggestions directly onto the document.
If you are a recent graduate (within three years) you will need to sign up to the system.
Types of appointment
Careers consultants can provide advice and guidance on any careers related subject. They can also review CVs, covering letters, applications and personal statements. Appointments are available every day, Monday - Friday during semester (times vary during vacation) and can be booked from 8.00 am up to five (working) days in advance or on the day.
You can make an appointment with a member of the placement team if you are interested in any sort of placement.
Student Jobshop staff can support you if you are applying for part-time casual work, plus advice on finding part-time jobs.
The Careers Service runs the Student Jobshop in the Students' Union.
Located on level 3 between SSID and New Leaf, the Student Jobshop advertises a range of part time jobs on campus and in the local area.
We can also offer help with your jobsearch and relevant work experience programmes.
The Student Jobshop is open: Monday - Friday 10.00 - 3.00 pm (except Tuesdays when we open at 11.00 am)
