Online careers library
Our online careers library provides links to a wide range of useful websites and other e-resources for career planning. Each resource is accompanied by a description of the content that it contains.
Use a general search tag such as options if you're unsure where to start for resources giving advice on next steps, exploring options with your degree or career planning questionnaires.
Alternatively, search for a specific industry area that you are interested in, e.g. accountancy, banking, charity, consultancy, healthcare, HR, IT, marketing, politics, sustainability, teaching etc. or search for more specific job titles.
You will also be able to find resources providing information on other popular areas such as postgraduate study, PhDs, funding, job hunting, networking, applications, interviews, aptitude tests, assessment centres, visas, self employment and more.
