Careers support

Your alumni community is a resource for your entire life and includes access to people who could open doors for you or be your mentors at any stage of your career. 

But if you graduated in the last 5 years, you're entitled to additional support from the Careers and Employability Service.

Starting your career is an exciting time. It's a time to learn about yourself, and to find out what you're good at and what you want to do. It's a time for trying out new things, building your skills and proving yourself. As a recent graduate, we want to help you have the best possible start. 

You can continue to use the careers resources on MyPort.

We also run a Career Cafe every September where you'll meet experienced alumni who will share their insights, knowledge and guidance to help you move forward on your career journey. Make sure your details are up to date so we can invite you to the cafe.
