Careers support for graduates and alumni

At Essex we believe in a culture of membership, so as a graduate from the University you have access to careers support for your whole lifetime. We understand that becoming established in the jobs market and developing your career isn’t always easy. We know that the path to success may not be straight or smooth. Every person’s situation is unique. So we want to be there for you, whatever your circumstances.

Support for graduates

You will continue to have access for life to careers support from Essex, so if you need a bit of help or you’re not happy in your current employment, get in touch.

Get your CV reviewed, get a careers advice appointment (also offered over the phone or via skype!), get your next job application reviewed or get in touch about interview prep and support. We’re here to help you to take your next step. Email essexgrad@essex.ac.uk.

CareerHub, the Essex students and graduates jobs board, is full of vacancies for graduate jobs and paid graduate internships. If you’re still looking for your dream job then you still have access.

If you are having trouble accessing CareerHub since you graduated please visit our Accessing Essex CareerHub page.

Graduate outcomes survey

Each year, we ask for your help to promote your department and the University to next year’s potential students. You will be contacted in relation to the statutory Graduate Outcomes survey - either by post, email or telephone.  The Graduate Outcomes survey is a national survey of all UK university leavers. It show us what you're doing 15 months after you graduate, whether that's employment or further study.
