Appointments for students are available to book in CareerConnect as 'Short Discussions'.
How we can help
Our careers advisers offer objective, confidential careers guidance based on your individual needs. This guidance can include (but is not limited to):
- feedback on CVs, cover letters, etc
- helping you to explore career paths
- discussing further study options
- providing sector specific information - advising where to find it
- suggesting where to find work experience
- advising on interview preparation and techniques
- showing you relevant resources and services
If our careers advisers are unable to meet your career needs then they will suggest alternative ways for you to seek assistance.
What we don't / can't cover
While we are able to provide comprehensive careers education, information and guidance in relation to the UK graduate labour market, we are not able to provide the same level of information about all other labour markets and practices.
We are not permitted by UK legislation to advise on immigration/visa matters, though we can help you find relevant sources of information (see also the International Student Advisory Service) and hold such information at the Careers Service.
Before you book
Before you book your 1-1 appointment please ensure that you have checked the relevant information on our website, as many answers to career related queries can be found within our articles. In particular, if you are looking for CV feedback please check through our CV page first for basic formatting and content guidance.
If you have any documents that you wish a careers adviser to look over, please upload them when you book an appointment.
If you have any questions about the information we have online, then please contact our Reception team on email@example.com
Who you can contact
All our careers advisers are capable of dealing with all queries so please feel free to book in to any of the available appointments. However, if you’d like to find out more about which adviser you will be contacting, please see our list of advisers.
How to book
If you would like to have a discussion online or by telephone, you can book a 'Short Discussion' appointment. We will either email a Teams meeting invitation to you before your appointment or if this has not been possible we will phone you at the time of the appointment. Please check that the phone number listed in your CareerConnect account is correct. We can still give you feedback on your CV and other documents on Teams or over the phone - these can be uploaded to your CareerConnect account when you book your appointment.
You are permitted to book up to one advice session per week. Appointments are released in CareerConnect, two working days ahead.
- Monday 1:1s are available to book from Thursday
- Tuesday 1:1s are available to book from Friday
- Wednesday 1:1s are available to book from Monday
- Thursday 1:1s are available to book from Tuesday
- Friday 1:1s are available to book from Wednesday
NOTE THAT If you need to have a discussion between 8:30 and 10:00, or between 16:00 and 18:30 (BST) because you are not currently in the UK/Europe, we will try to offer you one; please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange this.
If an appointment is cancelled, it is re-released so that someone else can book it, so do keep checking if you find the appointments are fully booked. If there are any last minute changes to the availability of appointments (due to sickness etc.) our Reception team will contact you as soon as possible to reschedule.
If you are having any difficulty booking an appointment then please contact our Reception team on 01865 274646 or email email@example.com
