Graduands throwing hats in the air in the South Quad at Graduation

Get Hired this summer 

 A summer programme of events brought to you by the Careers & Employability Service to help you launch your graduate career



At this time of year, on the lead up to graduation, some of you will be in a position to move directly into your desired career or postgraduate study, however, others may have a little more work to do. 

The Careers & Employability Service have specifically designed the Get Hired this Summer programme to help those of you who haven't yet decided what career you wish to pursue after graduation. The programme will help you figure out what you want to do, refine your options and guide you through the application process. Be sure to come say hello at our Graduation stall. We will be in the newly opened Founders Square all week, with some special givaways and tips on helping you find that perfect job.
