About the Careers Team

The Careers, Employability and Enterprise team is here to support our students and graduates whatever stage of your journey you’re at. We do this via (virtual) one-to-one appointments with our expert advisers where you can get general careers advice or discuss your career options. We offer CV or application form reviews, help with postgraduate or teaching applications, advice on work experience, internships, volunteering, part-time work or graduate jobs, interview help, or any other careers-related matters. Some appointments can be booked via this website (current students only); the rest, for both students and graduates, can be booked using the information on this page.

We also arrange a wide range of careers webinars, recruitment fairs and employers events (virtual alternatives are available now) designed to make you more employable and connect you with employers and graduate recruiters, which can be booked via this website. Both students and graduates can book these directly from this website.

The programme of webinars (online classes) are designed to help with the recruitment process so you can search for and successfully apply for jobs , placements, internships and voluntary opportunities. Topics include application forms, CVs, interviews, applying for work, assessment centres and more. We also arrange events to connect our students with employers and recruiters both inside your curriculum and as optional events. Employers regularly attend ‘Be inspired’ and ‘Virtual Careers Zone: Meet the employer’ events to meet students and discuss their opportunities. We arrange subject-specific recruitment fairs where you can meet a host of recruiters at one event, and we arrange guest talks, specialist workshops and employer presentations, where you can find out career options and routes directly from people doing the job. All of these events are organised to show you the range of options available to you and to hopefully inspire you to find the career of your choice.

This majority of events are open to all students no matter what your programme or level of study. However, some events are aimed directly at a certain cohort of students only i.e. ‘Postgraduate study for Business and Law students’, meaning the content has been tailored for these students alone and will not be suitable for students on other programmes.

For students and graduates interested in starting your own business, scaling a business, freelancing or exploring a business idea, contact the Centre for Entrepreneurship at startup@ljmu.ac.uk
