UCL Careers Service

23 July 2014


Whether you have a good idea about what you want to do after graduation, or havenot made firm plans yet, the UCL Careers Service is there to help you. You can get advice on anything from a broad view of the job market to help with getting a specific job.

You can find assistance with many things, including:

  • getting a part-time job, internship or gaining relevant work experience
  • preparing effective job applications and writing CVs
  • helping you make sense of the UK graduate job market and graduate study options
  • interview skills

In the UK over 60% of graduate jobs are advertised as open to everyone, no matter what degree they have studied. This broad choice can be exciting but also very daunting when faced with having to make a decision about your career. Based on feedback from previous students, the Careers Service has developed a programme of events designed to support your career and related academic decisions. This includes seminars running throughout the academic year. These cover a range of topics that will help you learn more about working in the UK, or anywhere else in the world you want to go. The Careers Service also invites international employers to come and talk to you, so you can learn more about what it is really like to work in different careers and countries.

You can also book meetings with careers consultants who can talk to you one-to-one about your plans. They can also help you to figure out where to start if you have no plans in place. You can get job applications and CVs checked by experienced application checkers, and when you get invited to an interview, you can book a mock interview to practice answering those tricky questions.

You can find a great range of information and downloadable guides to help you get started on the UCL Careers Service website.
