How and why to make a careers appointment

Further Education Careers Advice

You may have had a careers appointment or interview in the past. Either way, it is a very good way to talk through a range of issues that you are facing in deciding what to do next, ranging from:

  • How to do a job search
  • How to write a CV
  • What your options are, including further study, work, apprenticeships or voluntary work
  • Any possible barriers to your plans, for instance criminal records, family commitments, uncertainty about ideas, lack of work experience.
  • Lack of a clear idea about your options

You can either book in for a short 15 minute appointment, or have a longer one for up to 45 minutes.

If you would like to make an appointment, you can either email, ring 01245 424257 or come into the careers office in the library to make an appointment.

Our Facebook page and Twitter account are actively used to publicise information about vacancies, events and other useful resources or websites, so it would be worth ‘liking’ or following them too!

Most of what is discussed will remain confidential, but we do have a duty of care to look after the safety of you and others. This might mean that if a safeguarding issue arises this might need to be discussed with one of the college’s safeguarding team to ensure everyone’s wellbeing. If this does happen, whenever possible, the intention to involve another member of staff will be discussed with you.
