The Student and Graduates section of our website contains a vast range of helpful information to support you.

Our resources on Choosing Your Career and Making Applications are a great place to start.

When using these pages you will find links to the Careers Toolkit.  The Toolkit has a wide range of resources and programmes to help you with identifying your strengths, creating a CV (and gain instant feedback with CV360). and practising your interview technique.    You will require a graduate account to access the Careers Online Toolkit.

The Careers Service has developed a programme to support you and your career development as a graduate. It includes a range of activities for you to work through from exploring your options, reflecting on your skills and experience to date, to providing you with support with recruitment processes and starting work. There are 8 sections in total, you can either work through the whole programme or go straight to the sections that are most relevant to you.
