The Careers Service can provide guidance and help with job searches, applications and interviews.


Graduate jobs

Most of the graduate programmes open in the autumn. Some close well before Christmas. You need to be ready to apply as soon as you begin your final year of study. Make sure you login to MyCareerHub Strathclyde regularly.

Register and come along to the Scottish Graduate Fair. This is the best opportunity to meet with potential employers. You can also find out about graduate schemes.

There are graduate opportunities advertised throughout the year, particularly for Small Medium Enterprises (SME's). And for those companies who recruit all year round.


Internship programmes will be advertised throughout the academic year. Some will be available in the autumn. Others are not advertised until much closer to the summer vacation. Make sure you log in to MyCareerHub Strathclyde regularly.

Use the employer search facility on MyCareerHub Strathclyde to identify potential employers.

Use our Looking for a job section.

Yes. The latest graduate labour market figures suggest that between 50 and 70% of graduate jobs do not require a 2:1.

Contact the employer's Human Resources (HR) department to find out their requirements for non-UK applicants.

You will find lots of useful advice on international internships, summer work abroad, and graduate jobs abroad.

As a Careers Service, we try to ensure that every job advertised through MyCareerHub is genuine. And that it meets our vacancy advertising policy.

We know that you will use other websites and sources to identify opportunities. Just occasionally those opportunities won't be genuine.

Have a look at our guide on Staying Safe and Spotting Scams.

If you're concerned that an opportunity may be a scam, email for advice.

If you believe you may have responded to a scam, please talk to Citizens Advice Scotland.
