UEA Careers Service plays an important role in developing student employability at UEA, with particular reference to self-awareness, employment awareness, promotion of opportunities and career management skills. The services are used by undergraduates, taught postgraduates, research postgraduates and research staff.
The Careers Service sits within Research & Enterprise (REN) and is divided into the Careers Team and the Student Employability & Enterprise Team (SEED). The Careers Team comprises careers advisers and frontline staff offering careers guidance appointments and careers information. Careers advisers each have responsibility for liaising with particular Schools and there are specialist advisers and resources for research postgraduates, and staff. The SEED Team manages careers events, job vacancies (part-time, graduate, voluntary) and initiatives involving mentoring, internships and student enterprise.
These pages summarise the Careers Service involvement, ranging from one-to-one advice and guidance to employer events and employability reports for Schools.
