The university has a careers service that postgraduate students are welcome to use. Here you will be able to book interviews with a careers advisor, as well as coaching appointments to help prepare you for your future job hunt. Throughout the year, a number of workshops and seminars are organised to inspire and help you, something which many of the students mentioned positively in their reviews.
Online, there are step-by-step guides for CV help, as well as interview tips, advice on networking with employers and information on where to look to find a job. There is also the Internship Hub, which posts current vacancies from businesses in the local area, as well as a Jobshop for part-time work and volunteering opportunities. If you are thinking of starting your own business after graduating, the Startup support initiative will be able to offer you advice.
University of Glasgow students on Postgraduate Search say:
“Supervisors have recommended non-academic and career development opportunities and initiatives - conference organisations, public engagement opportunities, supported funding opportunities and internship applications. The university has initiatives in place to encourage skills development through workshops and extra-curricular opportunities.”
“A variety of post-doctoral training courses and careers workshops.”
“The course is specifically designed to train us to enter the marketplace and publishing world as well as cultivate our craft.”
“A lot of guest lectures, related skills courses, internship opportunity, career service and so on.”
“There are lots of these opportunities, especially if you sign up to extra awards. There are networking events, conferences, help writing CVs, opportunities to learn how to use different types of software and lots of guest lectures where you can listen to and ask questions of interesting people at the top of their field.”
“Yes. My university offers a session for improving employability by advising how we should demonstrate ourselves through LinkedIn and some practical interview advice.”
