Long hot summer…

April 21, 2009

With the end of the academic year fast approaching, now’s a good time to think of how to boost your CV over the summer months.   Work experience can be invaluable.  The Shell Step scheme is now open to second year/penultimate year and final year students and offers eight-week paid placements with small and medium-sized companies and community organisations.   For other work experience ideas go to the work experience section of the Careers Service website. If you fancy doing a bit volunteering check out Time Bank and Do It.  Both will help you find something near to where you live.  And, of course, there’s volunteering info on the careers site that’s easy to register for and browse.   If you want to brush up your IT skills, or learn something new, why not ring the government backed careers advice service tel 0800 101 901, and ask about short courses.   However, it’s worth seeing what’s out there before you commit.   Finally, don’t forget to register for vacancies on our website so you don’t miss out!

Careers Forums – Have your say…

April 20, 2009

dsc_3408v41As of today there’s a new way for you to get some of your careers questions answered and have your say about anything careers related – you can use our new Careers Forums.  They are really easy to use as all you need to do is login in with your university username and password. Once in there, you can view the current discussions and categories, post a comment, or start a discussion.

The forums have been launched as an opportunity for you to ask any questions you have to fellow students and graduates, and to get advice from others who may be in the same situation as you (or have been in it recently).  Discussion categories on the forums include: ‘Help! I don’t know what I want to do!’, ‘Applications, Interviews and Psychometric Tests’, ‘Job Hunting’, ‘Staying in Manchester’ and more.

When you’re in the forums, make sure to have a look at the short  ‘House Rules and the ‘Getting started with the Careers Service Forums’ guides before you start.  Apart from that, you’ll be ready to go and we hope that you find the forums useful!

My Career in …

April 17, 2009

This is a new thread looking at people who have chosen careers outside the mainstream or who work in a more unusual setting.  All too often we hear about the same big corporate career opportunities and it is easy to forget that there are alternative careers and routes into careers available. We hope that by reading their stories it will inspire you to think more widely and creatively about your career options.
