Applying for jobs
If you are struggling with any stage of the job application process, make a one-to-one appointment with the Careers Officer for some objective advice.
Talking through your résumé and experience may uncover relevant information that you may have forgotten to include or did not think was useful. Another set of eyes can be helpful in eliminating errors, getting your main points across and building your confidence.
The Careers Officer also works with our Heads of School and discipline coordinators as well as Pathways Success Now! workshop program to deliver advice on every stage of the job application process.
For more information on either of these opportunities, make an appointment to speak to the study support team.
