Careers & Employment
A huge welcome to all new students, and welcome back to those returning. We want to help you make the most of your time at University and are here to support you and help you to get to where ever you want to be. Watch the short Careers video above to uncover all the areas we can provide support.
Key Tips for First Years
- We can help you find a job while you study, go to the Jobs & Work section, and sign up to JobsOnline to set up email alerts of part-time job vacancies.
- We can help you find work experience through volunteering, develop employability skills and put together a CV which demonstrates your abilities.
- Our Student Jobs and Volunteering Fair is on 3rd October, call in to see what's on offer.
Key Tips for Final Years
- Get your job search started, sign up to JobsOnline and set up email alerts for jobs in areas that interest you.
- Be aware of early closing dates, many of the larger companies who have graduate management training schemes start their recruitment early. If you don't want to miss out call into the Careers Centre in October and pick up an employer directory.
- Employers want to meet you, through presentations, fairs and drop-ins. We have our Law Business and Finance Fair taking place in November which is open to all students and includes a wide range of graduate jobs. We run a wide range of employer visits, and all these and fairs are online at Careers Events.
- If you are signed up to the Careers section on the e-Learning portal you will receive regular emails keeping you posted of new resources, employer visits and careers events.
- You can also follow us on Twitter, and like our Facebook page at NUCareers.
