Complete your employability audit

your Essex checklist

We’re asking all new students (once you’ve pre-registered online) to complete a quick, online audit of your current skills, experience and other things, such as any volunteering you may have done.

Don't worry – this isn’t a test and there are no right or wrong answers! It’s just a useful snapshot so you can follow your Essex journey and build on your experiences throughout. The online audit takes no more than five minutes to complete, and at the end we'll give you some great feedback and a tailored checklist you can download (.pdf), save and print – and remember to bring your checklist with you when you arrive at Essex.

It has loads of practical advice and things you can do from day one here that will help you gain experience, develop crucial skills and ultimately make yourself more employable. Plus, you’ll be entered into a prize draw to win an iPad. So don’t delay, do your online audit today!


The EssexCV pack

Our Essex CV pack takes you through the CV-writing process from beginning to end, helping you showcase the full extent of your skills and experience, promote yourself to employers and get the opportunity you really want.
