There’s a dedicated careers service you can use while at the University of Essex which aims to help you improve your job prospects. The team provides help and advice to aid the development of your skills and to help you find job opportunities and experiences throughout your time at uni and once you’ve graduated.
On the uni’s CareerHub you’ll be able to book onto careers events, workshops, webinars and one-to-one appointments with careers advisers. These will allow you to explore different career options, as well as improve certain skills that are important when looking for a job, e.g., interview technique.
The various events and sessions will also give you the opportunity to meet potential employers and start to grow your professional network, improving your job prospects in the process. You’ll also be able to get help with searching for jobs, writing CVs and cover letters, and preparing for interviews and assessment centres.
