Students & Graduates

With a vast network of employers, the careers team are dedicated to supporting you with your career development during your time here at the University. This website will support you in accessing specialist information and resources tailored for your current position. Our Timeline will guide you through your career planning and help you to track your progress. . Our ‘Careers on Blackboard’ pages are available to current students and host our interactive online careers development tools accessible at any time whilst studying with us.

This section of the website is devoted to live Q&A sessions with our own advisers or external employers. We will promote the Live Q&A’s in advance and you can also access session archives below.

On campus, we have a specialist team based within our Careers & Employability Centre on the ground floor of the University Library, and this is an ideal place to start. We are open 9am until 4.30pm Monday to Friday where you can drop in with any careers queries you may have. If it’s a quick enquiry such as a CV check, or advice on personal statements, job applications or job search, you can just pop in to our Careers Clinic between 1-4pm. If travelling to visit us, please give us a quick call to double check that we’re open.

We offer a comprehensive events programme giving you the opportunity to hear from the experts. With a host of employers and external organisations offering bespoke sessions to support you, these are not to be missed. Furthermore, our annual Careers Fair, ‘Find Your Feet’ is a great opportunity to network with the employers of the future. Group advice sessions take place throughout each week and cover a variety of topics, from CV writing to job search techniques and interview preparation;  these can all be found on the Events page.

Our vacancy service will give you access to 1000s of graduate level jobs, as well as work placements and part time jobs for whilst you are studying here, helping you to set yourself aside from the competition, in an increasingly competitive graduate labour market.

To help you make sense of all of these activities, we offer you the opportunity to work towards your Lincoln Award, to help you to understand how you can apply your learning and experiences to the ‘world of work’.

In addition to all of this we offer one to one careers guidance, and subject specific workshops and lectures, so look out for us in your School’s, but should you want any information on any of our services please do get in touch by visiting our Careers Centre.

Finding your career can be tough, but we are here to help guide you through the challenges and to help you to achieve your full potential and ambition.
