About the Careers Team

The LJMU Careers Team arranges a wide range of workshops, webinars, fairs, employers events and activities designed to make you more employable, which can be booked via this website. The programme of workshops and 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.

The Careers Team also arrange events to connect our students with employers both inside your curriculum and as optional events. Employers regularly visit the Careers Zones to meet students and discuss their opportunities. We arrange subject-specific careers fairs where you can meet a host of employers 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.

Please note: no booking is required for employer visits to the Careers Zones, you can just turn up and meet employers on the date listed. These employer visits are branded as ‘Employer in the Zone’ or ‘Careers Thursday’ on this site.
