The School of Law endeavours to help students to recognise their own strengths, skills and abilities so that they can make strong applications for their chosen job or training course.
Advice on careers, including CV writing, completing application forms and preparing for an interview, is provided by the School’s teaching staff, as well as by the College Careers Service, which is part of the University of London Careers Advisory Service.
Employers are interested in the skills you develop through student life as well as the academic knowledge you gain through your studies.The School, in partnership with the Careers Service, provides opportunities to develop transferable skills and enables you to market yourself effectively to graduate jobs.
Students can also benefit from one-to-one advice from a careers consultant with appointments available in each term. Students can also access a wide range of facilities from the Careers Service. In the first weeks of each term the Careers Service run part-time jobs fair, providing students with access to local employers, and a wide variety of skills workshops throughout the academic year. The Careers Service also runs many workshops including using social media for job hunting, interview skills and how to make the most out of recruitment fairs. As the Careers Service is also part of the Careers Group, this gives students access to employers and careers fairs in London as well as locally. The School maintains strong links with its alumni, who are often able to provide advice, contacts and networking opportunities to current students.
The Careers Service also has information specifically related to Criminology and Sociology students which can be found here.
