What happens in a Careers interview?

This is mainly up to you, as you will decide the issues you would like to discuss and work on in the interview.  

Our team of careers advisers is here to help you investigate your careers options, sort out your career plans and develop the important skills you need to make these plans happen, and we offer practical support at all stages of your job applications.

Your adviser will provide advice, information and help related to your query and may identify other areas for you to consider. Your adviser will also help you to plan your next steps.

You may agree with your adviser that you need to spend more time discussing your career and a second appointment will sometimes be made for you. If you would like a longer appointment the adviser is able to refer you to one of our careers consultants with specialist knowledge of your subject area.

Confidentiality and impartiality

You may sometimes want to give personal and sensitive information to the adviser. This will not be passed on to anyone else unless you want it to be. Any notes made by the adviser during the interview are for you and the adviser only and are not passed on to anyone else.

The advice and guidance you receive will be entirely impartial. This means that you will not be encouraged to take any course of action unless it is in your best interests. We will not promote particular employers or post-graduate courses, but we will help you decide which options are right for you.
