It’s pretty much what you would expect given when many application dates open for graduate schemes & internships.

The Careers Service is open as normal during the Easter vacation only closing for the bank holidays.
The Quick Query service for application, CV and other advice is on daily 2.30 – 4.30. Bookings are taken at the usual times – you can ring up to book a time from 9.30 or you can pop in from 9.10.
It’s normally fairly quiet during Easter vacation and onwards into the exam period, but don’t leave booking appointments until the last minute as it can still get booked up especially if you wish to see a specific adviser.
It’s often busy towards the end of May and in June as final year students prepare for the Graduate fair and make plans for the next step in their career. We run a series of events in early June aimed at all year groups so watch out for these if you want to get a head start on preparing for the year ahead or need to catch up! They will be advertised in Careerslink nearer the time.
Which ever year group you are in good luck with your exams, and please don’t wait to visit us until you are on the way to the station cases in hand never to return!
