New space in the Careers Service and new things in it!

Over the summer vacation the Careers Service underwent a bit of building work with new interview rooms being created for careers appointment and CV review use. We took the opportunity to have a bit of a move around in the Information Room and bought lots of new books to go in it too.

We have lots more books for you to use with extra copies now available in the University Library for you to borrow. These are some of the subjects we’ve bought books about, including one or two examples of new titles:

  • career planning and self-awareness: Non-traditional careers for Chemists, Careers with an arts or humanities degree, Eat that frog 
  • skills: skills for success, Employability skills, Successful presentation skills, The leadership skills handbook 
  • job hunting and making applications: Brilliant graduate career handbook, The graduate jobs formula, Graduate career handbook, Brilliant intern 
  • aptitude testsHow to pass the Civil Service qualifying tests, How to pass graduate psychometric tests 
  • self-employment and freelancing: Freelancing for dummies, Brewing up a business, Enterprising nonprofits.

 We still have our usual resources too:

  • job sector information
  • (newly expanded) work experience and skills development files
  • applying for work files
  • international work and study files
  • student-use PCs
  • take away materials and brochures
  • friendly and helpful staff
  • comfy seating and complimentary drinks machine!

We think the new space looks great – we hope you think so too. Why not come and have a look, browse the new books we’ve got and have a cuppa in the new surroundings?
