Of course, the employment market is very competitive, and we endeavour to ensure that all our students receive advice and training to prepare them for the transition to employment or further study.
The UEA Careers and Employability Service supports students to reflect on their skills and aspirations and relate these to potential jobs and careers. They also give advice and run invaluable workshops on finding vacancies, interview techniques and how you can write your CV effectively for job or higher-degree applications.
The School, in conjunction with the Careers Centre, also organises regular career events, including graduates returning to give advice about developing your job prospects and career ideas to exhibitions and networking with potential employers in the environmental industries.
The School of Education and Lifelong Learning (EDU) has produced tailored employability brochures to help current undergraduate students and recent graduates in the search for your own unique career path. The purpose of these guides are to help you to find out what you want to do, what you need to know and who you need to meet in order to do it.
Your time in the School is one of the few times when you will have regular access to seminars, guest speakers from a variety of organisations, practical workshops to develop your skills, academic and careers advisors – and most importantly – a group of peers with similar interests and dreams to your own. Make the most of these – and use these guides to help you plan you find 'What will you be doing after EDU’.
