If you are still looking for that graduate level job Northumbria’s Careers and Employment Service is here to help you; the service has a range of careers events and activities that are open to you as a Northumbria graduate.

In late September the service will be facilitating a programme of employer presentations, drop-ins and skills sessions with most visiting employers wanting to speak to graduates as well as current students. There is also the Northumbria Careers Fair which takes place each year in the Autumn and, as ever, 1-1 support is available to graduates in the Careers Zone throughout the year.

For more information on any upcoming events visit the Careers event pages.


If you are still looking for a graduate job, sign up to the Careers and Employment Service's JobsOnline tool. You will find 100's of opportunities and graduate internships and it only takes two minutes to set up to receive email alerts for new postings.
