Our What's On Guide for this Summer is now available. It features key employability events, activities and opportunities for all students from first years to postgraduate students. Many past graduates say they wish they had participated in more careers activities whilst at Essex. Invest some time now. It’s your future.


You need to book your place in advance for any of our events. Booking opens two weeks before each event, unless otherwise stated.

Your focus will no doubt be on exams or your dissertation this term but this is still a key time to be proactive in your preparation for the working world, whatever your year of study. Make the most of the Employability and Careers Centre support whilst you’re still here. Here’s a sample of employability sessions happening this term:

  • Graduation: What Next? 9 June and 10 June. Intensive two day event which focuses on how to decide on a career, drawing up a career plan and how to put that career plan into action, a must for students graduating this summer who need direction. Booking opens 28 April.
  • Internships and Vacation Opportunities: Essex Interns - how to apply for paid local internships, Effective Applications for Frontrunners
  • Exploring your personality and career choice - The Myers Briggs Type Indicator questionnaire is used in organisations world-wide as part of personal and career development programmes
  • Job hunting sessions include CV basics, LinkedIn Labs and Effective Applications and Interviews for postgraduate students

Look out for any career sessions offered by your Department, Faculty or Student Society too.
