Our team of careers staff are here to support your transition into the world of work. Our services are available to you for up to 3 years after you graduate which include:

Still exploring your career options?

Whether you’re considering travelling abroad or postgraduate study, our team can help you plan out your options after university. We have a number of schemes in the UK and abroad which will allow you to gain valuable careers experience.

If you are still not sure which career path to take, make an appointment with one of our careers advisers or take a look at our occupational guides available in Careers SPACE.

Job Hunting

The way that you search for jobs should reflect the type of work you’re looking for as well as where you’d like to work. Before starting to job hunt, make sure that you research the type of work you’re interested in to find out how people working in your career of interest tend to find employment. The occupational profiles on the prospects website can help you to conduct this initial research, as can speaking to a Careers Adviser.

Not found a job yet?

It’s really normal to not know what you want to do when you graduate and often is takes a while to get into the job you have in mind. Keep going, stay resilient in your job hunt.

There could be many reasons things aren’t going to plan. Have you:

  • Targeted your CV and had it checked?
  • Have you researched the employer  and do you know what they are looking for
  • Do you know what your selling points are?
  • Have you practiced for upcoming Job assessments? If not, you can register at Graduates First for FREE as Wolverhampton alumnus.
  • Have you got enough experience for the role you are applying for
  • Are you looking in the right places for the jobs you are interested in?
  • Found yourself a mentor?
  • Does your online presence do you justice?

Don’t panic, we can help you work out what’s going wrong and can help you work out the next best steps to take. You can come and see us up to 3 years after graduation.

Found a job: Success in the workplace

Congratulations if you have managed to secure a graduate job on completion of your degree. We want to ensure that you have the skills and qualities needed to be successful and resilient in your new role. You may be asked to do things that you have not had to consider in previous employment, such as mentor someone, run a team meeting or line management. Whatever situation or task you face, we want to equip you with the tools to perform to the best of your abilities within your new role.
