Attention: Graduates booking appointments

If you are a graduate wanting to book an appointment, please contact the Careers and Employability Service directly and we will book this for you.

We recommend reading the advice on our website and using our digital tools to improve your confidence or review your skills/applications, before booking an appointment.

To make sure you get the support you need as quickly as possible, we offer 'Careers and Employability Advice' appointments throughout the day, Monday - Friday, with our Employability Advisers. These appointments become bookable from midnight each day and you can choose to meet an Adviser face-to-face at Careers Connect on our city or collegiate campuses, or opt for a Zoom or telephone call. If you can’t find your preferred time and place on the day you would like to see us, more appointments will be available the next day.

Employability Advisers can help you with:

  • Researching sectors, organisations, and career paths

Further Appointment Support

We offer a wide range of support to our students. In order to book an Extended, Guidance or Practice Interview appointment, you must contact the Careers and Employability Service directly and we will book this for you.

Careers and Employability Guidance Appointments

If you are currently exploring your options, not sure what to do or where to start, our ‘Careers and Employability Guidance’ appointments with our Senior Employability Advisers are here to help. These in-depth appointments give you the opportunity to explore your career options, identify your strengths, work out what career might suit you, and help you to make decisions about your future.

Practice Interviews

We will recreate an interview experience where you will then receive detailed feedback, designed to improve your performance and confidence. If you have a specific interview coming up, please send us the job details, e.g. job description or link to a job advert, at least 48 hours in advance of your Practice Interview. This means we can tailor questions to give you the best, most relevant experience. Take a look at our Interview page to help you fully prepare for your practice interview.
