UCL Careers News
There are plenty of ways to keep up-to-date with what's happening at UCL Careers including forthcoming events, current job opportunities and other careers news or important updates.
Tuesday 28th June to late August 2016
Over the Summer, the UCL Careers office on the 4th Floor of Student Central will be closed so that the student information library and one-to-one interview space can be remodelled and refurbished. Please do not visit us in person there during this period.
However, we do plan to stay operational while the building work takes place as detailed below...
One-to-One Advice Appointments
These will continue to run over the Summer as normal but will either be conducted in interview rooms elsewhere on campus or via Skype. Simply follow the "How to Book..." instructions for the relevant appointment type as detailed on our Advice pages and you will be given more information on where to go or how to Skype us as appropriate when booking.
Jobs and Information Resources
Although there will be no access to our physical Information Library, electronic copies of most resources can be found through our online library, Careers Tagged, as detailed in the relevant Help With... page.
During the closure period, organisations looking to advertise vacancies to UCL students / graduates can still do so online via our Recruiters' page. This section of our site also gives more information and contact details for other recruitment services and activities such as events, our skill development programme, Talent Bank etc.
