Drop-in

The Careers Service offers advice drop-in sessions with the Careers Advisers. The sessions run every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 1.30 to 4.00pm. No need to book just come into the Careers Service, level 6 of the Livingstone Tower and an Adviser will see you as soon as possible. Time slots are for a maximum of 20 minutes and allocated on a first come first served basis. We therefore advise arriving as close to 1.30pm as possible.

Please be aware that drop-in is in intended for quick queries. More extended discussions can only be undertaken at a guidance appointment.  Drop-in is also not intended for CV or application checking as there is a dedicated service for this. Please ask for advice at reception.

Booked guidance appointments

If you want help with more complex matters such as understanding your options, making a good career choice, weighing up the pros and cons of several possibilities or selecting the right employers to target, you may arrange an appointment with a careers adviser. To help make the best type of appointment for you, our reception staff will ask a number of questions, such as 'Can you explain what you wish to discuss with the adviser?' Please be as specific as possible and understand that they are asking these questions to help you. They are not being nosey!

Appointments have to be made in advance. We will give you the earliest suitable appointment possible but please plan ahead. We make every effort to provide an appointment within 3 weeks but this will not always be possible at busy times of the year. If you cannot keep your appointment, please tell us so that someone else can use that appointment time.

It is important that you arrive on time for your appointment. If you are more than 10 minutes late, you will not be seen by the adviser.

If you are unable to come into the Careers Service, it may be possible to arrange a telephone or Skype appointment, at the discretion of Careers Service staff.

 

To arrange an appointment, either call in to the Careers Service, or telephone 0141 548 4320.   We regret that we are unable to arrange appointments by email.

Practice interviews

Worried about that upcoming interview?   We have an interview simulator which you can use to practice with.   Login with your DS login and then you can practice your answers in the privacy of your own room.

We may also be able to offer you a practice interview with a Careers Adviser.   However, please be aware that it is not always possible to arrange a practice interview at short notice.

Our Resource Centre

At Careers reception on Level 6 of Livingstone Tower, it's not just a waiting area.  We have a small library of careers information materials for you to use.   

Feel free to come along at any time to browse our employer leaflets or spend time working through one of our psychometric test books.
