The University of Aberdeen’s Careers and Employability service is dedicated to improving the job prospects of its students and graduates. As a student at Aberdeen, the service will aim to connect you with jobs and other work experience opportunities, as well as improve the skills that are needed once you’ve graduated.
You’ll be able to book 20 and 30-minute appointments with professional careers advisers to get help with things like writing your CV and job applications, exploring different career paths and practising interview technique.
You’ll also be able to sign up for the various careers events that run throughout the year. You’ll find workshops that are tailored toward improving your employability skills, such as preparing for interviews, as well as careers events that bring together employers from different sectors. These are a great way to learn about different industries and start building your professional network.
Additionally, you can apply to the SME Santander Internship Scheme which offers a range of internships with small and medium enterprises, as well as the InternPlus and the Aberdeen Internship, which both offer an exclusive paid placement opportunity.
