What we do

The Careers Centre is here to help you make decisions and plan the next steps towards a bright future. From finding work or further study to working out your interests, skills and aspirations, we can provide you with the expert information, advice and guidance you need. It doesn't matter whether you have no ideas and don't know where to start, or are clear on what you want to do and just need some help tweaking your CV; we can help.

Our services are open to all current University of Leeds students, and University of Leeds alumni. See our Statement of Service for more information.

Appointments

We offer a range of appointments, bookable on MyCareer and currently all delivered online via MS Teams.

This means that every weekday, new appointments will become available for the following week.

  • In-faculty appointments - See MyCareer for what's available in your School or Faculty, but generally these are a useful starting point for employability and placements support
  • Application Support Appointments - If you need help with applications, interviews, finding opportunities, assessment centres, or anything else relating to job or further study applications.
  • Careers Guidance Appointments – If you need help getting started with your career thinking, making decisions or want to talk through your ideas, you can book a guidance appointment with a Careers Consultant.
  • Mock Interviews – Got an interview coming up but not sure how to prepare? We can give you a trial run and provide you with feedback to help you succeed on the day.
  • Quick queries – For any urgent queries, a limited number of short on-the-day appointments are released at 9am each Monday, Wednesday and Friday (starting Wednesday 7th October 2020). 
  • MyCareer Questions –  Submit questions online to access help and support from one of our expert advisers. We aim to reply to all questions within 3 working days. Look at our FAQS and search our website before you submit your question as you may be able to find the answer more quickly there.
