Last Wednesday I was allowed out of the office to go on a visit.  This time it was to Lincoln’s Inn in London (to those of you who are not of a legal persuasion, the Inns of Courts are important for Barristers and those training to be Barristers).  A lot of the day revolved around certainty.

Careers services when you graduate

June 18, 2010

Yes, if you’re about to graduate, our help doesn’t stop here. Lots of students I speak to don’t realise that they can use all the services the Careers Service offers for 3 years after graduation. If you’re not sure what we offer, there’s a list of services on our website.

While this blog is really aimed at undergraduates, the good news is that we also have an older sibling blog – the Manchester Graduate Careers blog – which will help you make the transition into the world of work, further study or whatever your next steps might be as a new graduate.

At the moment, the Graduate Careers blog is featuring an excellent ‘How to find a job’ series – very timely if you’re graduating and thinking ‘What next?’, as well as other useful posts like:

Have a great summer and good luck with all your career plans!

It wasn’t strictly 9 to 5, but 2 ‘til 6 (which in student terms is pretty much a full day’s work). So if you’re in two minds about whether to get a part-time job while you’re here at university, I thought I’d impart some wisdom and maybe help you make a decision. Read the rest of this entry »

My career in… Youth Work

June 14, 2010

I am a project coordinator on a youth volunteering project working with young people in Manchester City Centre.  I have been running my own project in Manchester and Birmingham for 5 years.

What are you working on at the moment?

Current projects range from:

Helping young people who are in bands to organise and promote their own events – which as a result should give them experience of budgeting and other skills along the way.

Trying to work with local police and the city council to ensure that there are appropriate spaces for young people to socialise and be safe in. Read the rest of this entry »
