Career guidance

We have award-winning career guidance at the University! So, make sure you use it throughout your studies to prepare and plan for your post-graduation options!

Book an appointment

Appointments with the Careers and Employability Service can support you with career and further study options, writing CVs, cover letters, applications and preparing for interviews and assessment centres. In person and online appointments are available each week. Support offered is 1:1 and tailored to each individual’s needs.

If you would like an adviser to review any documents, please upload them when you book an appointment.

Careers events

We have a range of on campus, hybrid and virtual events throughout the year to help you gather information about future career paths and develop the skills necessary to apply for job and work experience opportunities. 

We also offer an extensive programme of online career development workshops

Speak to your Academic Advisor

You can speak to your Academic Advisor about your career path and what steps you can take.

Your school will let you know who your Academic Adviser is (in your student handbook or online) and you can search for advisers in KentVision.

Support for taught postgraduates

If you’re studying for a taught master’s degree, you can sign up to the Global Skills Award to improve your skills and chances of getting your dream job after your Master’s.

The Global Skills Award will broaden your understanding of global issues and current affairs, as well as many of the graduate attributes top graduate employers are looking for.

The programme runs for six-months and is completely free.

Support for research postgraduates

If you’re a research postgraduate you can sign up for the Researcher Development Programme.

The programme will develop your skills as a researcher and ensure you’re not only highly-qualified but employable at the end of your research too!

Graduate career support

Support from the Careers and Employability Service does not end when you leave the University! You can access our services and career development workshops, via your Careers Hub account, for up to 3 years after you have graduated. Support offered will be during our quieter times. Our advisers offer objective careers support based on your individual needs. This guidance can include (but is not limited to):

  • Feedback on CVs, cover letters and application forms
  • Helping you to explore career paths
  • Discussing further study options
  • Practice interviews and advising on interview preparation
  • Assessment centre preparation and techniques
  • Signposting to relevant resources
