We know its not easy to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life. But don't worry! At Essex, we have a great team of professional careers advisers who can support you through your journey, as you develop your passions and sharpen your focus. Whatever choices you make in life, having a firm foundation of skills and knowledge around career planning, finding a job, networking and understanding your own motivations will give you a head start.
Our careers service can offer you a wealth of support and our career-focused modules across a range of subjects will set you up for success.
The Careers Service helped me take the Myers Briggs personality test which gave me more confidence in pursuing my field and helped me understand the timeline of applying for jobs, the correct techniques to write a cover letter, and the importance of networking within the UK.
Want some inspiration to explore different options? Need some advice from someone who has gone before, who can spare some time to share what they learned along the way? Our Essex mentors are there to offer the benefit of their experience and guide you to develop the skills you need to make decisions that are right for you. Further details of how you can apply to the programme can be found on our Essex Career Mentoring Programme page.
