The Careers & Employability Service wants to help you get hired!

We have designed the Get Hired this Summer programme to help those of you who haven't yet decided what career you wish to pursue now that you've graduated. The programme will help you figure out what you want to do, refine your options and guide you through the application process. 

We still have lots of support and events planned for the coming months and are encouraging you to do just one thing now to take the next step to getting hired!
