The School 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 of Management, in partnership with the Careers Service, provides opportunities to develop transferable skills that allow you to market yourself effectively for graduate jobs.
The School of Management promotes personal development, employability and life skills through the curriculum. As part of the first year Study Skills & Methods course, undergraduates learn about skills required by employers and build up their commercial awareness. Specific personal and professional development courses are available for MSc and MBA International Management respectively.
Students can also benefit from one-to-one advice from a Careers Consultant with appointments available each term. Students also access a wide range of facilities from the Careers Service. In the first week of term the Careers Service runs part-time jobs fair, providing students with access to local employers, and a wide variety of skills workshops throughout the academic year.
In autumn 2012 the Colleges' first week will explore career opportunities in Investment Banking, Public Sector Finance, Accountancy, Professional Services and Insurance. This includes the new Business & IT Careers Fair, with employers coming to campus to talk through career routes in their organisations.
