As we are heading into Trinity term and approaching the end of a challenging academic year, we are all starting to look ahead to the summer.
If that means that you are starting to think about your future career options and goals, or are looking into securing work experience or a graduate role starting this year, know that the Careers Service is here to support you any point in your career preparedness.
Our careers advisers have planned a series of events to help you build a career plan, secure work experience, and introduce you to employers over the coming months. Applications are now open, so click on the events that could be useful to you and book your place in CareerConnect.
