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


Calling all finalists – the Careers & Employability Service wants to help you get hired!

At this time of year, some of you will be in a position to move directly into your desired career or postgraduate study. However, some of you have been waiting until your examinations and assessments are complete, and may have a little more work to do.

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 encourage you to do just one thing now to take the next step and get hired!
