Help with applications and interviews

The Spring Term is often a busy time for students making job and course applications and attending interviews. We can help with the whole recruitment process of:

  • Applications
  • Interviews
  • Assessment centres
  • Aptitude tests.

We run workshops, courses and presentations about the different stages. We also have resources in the Information Room and on the website at www.york.ac.uk/careers/work.

Finally, if you need advice on any aspect of the process, come and speak to one of the Information Team at the enquiry desk in the Careers Service. If you have a more specific enquiry, book a careers appointment or book a CV review, if you want someone to look over your CV.

Whatever stage you’re at, whatever your year of study, check out how we can help by visiting www.york.ac.uk/careers or calling into the Careers Service near Campus Central car park.
