We know how important it is for our students to find quality employment.
Whether you are looking for employment whilst studying, or thinking about life after graduation, we have information and signposting to support you.
If you need support with employability, the first thing you should do is book an appointment with the University’s careers advisor from the Careers and Employability Service. You can do this by visiting the myCareer service or by contacting Firstpoint.
During your appointment, you can ask about:
How to increase your employability
Take free psychometric tests to determine your learning styles, your career interests, and your readiness to enter employment.
Employability events, workshops, and careers fairs
How to write a CV, cover letter and where to search for jobs.
How to take part in the Worcester Award
What opportunities might be available you on your course. Ie. Paid placements, internships, and partner institutions
How to earn while you learn
