Welcome to this short introduction to Careers Network.
The College of Arts and Law has a dedicated and experienced Careers team and are your main contact points for any careers questions.
Sarah, Monira and Mark all provide advice and guidance via email, 1:1 appointments, deliver projects, events and workshops across the College. We work closely with each Department and School to tailor our services according to subject area, student career interests and increase your awareness of the huge breadth of occupations and sectors, employers and further study options to inspire you!
Lesley oversees the College’s Professional Skills Module and supports you to find work experience placements that are based within your course. Sarah Garner supports you to find internships and gain work experience across all sectors and roles.
You will find us in your lectures and seminars providing employability and enterprise skills training across a range of topics. We host a wide range of employer and alumni events, talks, recruitment fairs, webinars and skills workshops, across different sectors and industries. As well as supporting your student society careers events.
You can book online and in-person 1:1 careers appointments on the CN website, email us your guidance queries and request for feedback on your applications, and we also offer informal drop-ins on campus throughout the year.
It’s really important to keep up to date with the latest opportunities from Careers Network and our employer partners. We mainly contact you via email (so please do check your inbox), as well as Canvas announcements, monthly e-newsletters, and fortnightly Work on Wednesday (WOW) e-newsletters to highlight work experience, graduate vacancies and the latest events on campus and beyond. We’d also encourage you to like or follow us on our social media platforms.
Whatever stage you’re at in thinking about your career and next steps we’re here to help. We provide an extensive range of services and support including specialist feedback and advice on your career strategy, applications, interview preparation and employability skills.
You can access a wealth of online resources to help you research different careers, further study, as well as help for starting your own business.
Why not get involved in our award winning Personal Skills Award, apply for our Alumni Mentoring Programme, or come and meet some of our hundreds of employers at events we host throughout the year, both online and on campus, who are recruiting right now for work experience and graduate opportunities.
You will also have ongoing support following your graduation as long as you need it.
