Honours years are an excellent time to start researching your future after graduation, if you haven’t already done so. Whatever your ideas – work, further study, gap year, volunteering, gaining experience, whatever stage you’re at – clued up or clueless, and anything in between, the Careers Service can support you in your journey from university to your future after graduation. They work with students and graduates from day one, to 2 years after graduation. They are based on the third floor of the Main Library Building, and are open Monday-Friday. Please visit their website for more information about finding part-time and summer jobs, planning your career, CVs, applications and interviews, etc.
