University career advisers - helping you make the right career choice
Your university career adviser should be your first stop when looking for careers advice. From helping you make your initial career choice to pointing out relevant career opportunities for you, university career advisers are trained professionals who can help you in every stage of your career choice and development.
A university career adviser can take you through all the career choices that your degree has opened up for you and help you decide which direction you want your future career to go in. Your career adviser will also be able to show you career opportunities that you might not have been aware of, from graduate placements and further study opportunities to career fairs and job opportunities abroad.
Many university careers advice centres also offer extensive resources to students to help them find and take advantage of each career opportunity as it arises, including free CV workshops, internet access, coaching on interview techniques and help with filling in job application forms.
If you are a current student seeking help with career choices you should always contact your own university career adviser. if you are a graduate, you should make contact initially with a career adviser from the university you graduated from before getting in touch with a local University career adviser.
Each university careers service listing includes a specialist section called 'Graduate Services', which lists the level of help and advice graduates can expect from University career advisers in the UK and the Republic of Ireland.
