A great way to keep up with careers information & events on the world’s favourite social network. We have both a central account and specific accounts to get information tailored to your degree programme. If you have any burning questions, then feel free to send us a message.

LinkedIn groups

LinkedIn is a valuable online tool that can help you network professionally online and is being increasingly used by graduate recruiters to recruit for internships and graduate vacancies. There are several groups now available to help you network with other students and Careers Network staff.

If you are interested in getting started using LinkedIn for job searches, they have produced a handy checklist to making the most out of your profile and network.

Blogs

Written by students and alumni, our blogs give you an idea of what other students are doing to connect to their future career. Read their stories of internships, mentoring, networking, careers fairs and many other experiences to share what they have discovered and get inspiration for your own career journey. If you would like to share your experiences with other students, please email Jessica Holloway Swift, Student Engagement Office: j.s.hollowayswift@bham.ac.uk.

YouTube isn't just for music videos! We have a variety of videos, from interviews with students and graduates to tips on graduate applications to suggestions from employers on preparing for the job market. Watch real people talking about their experiences.

Pinterest is on online pinboard where you can organise and share images and videos. Full of great infographics, ideas on what to wear to interviews and innovative visual CVs, our careers focussed boards provide you with inspiration on your future career.
