Careers and Enterprise


Showcase your skills and experience effectively when applying for jobs/further study, or launching an enterprise idea, to gain the opportunities you want.

  • When you apply for a graduate job, freelance opportunity or further study, the application process requires you to showcase your skills and experience to the employer or course provider in order for them to work out if you are a good candidate.
  • You can demonstrate how your skills and experience make you a good candidate in many different ways, such as how you write your CV, present yourself on LinkedIn and answer interview questions.
  • As an entrepreneur you will need to showcase your entrepreneurial skills and mindset. You can do this by launching your enterprise idea, participating in entrepreneurial competitions or pitching for investment to take your idea to the next level.

SEED Award

A great way to showcase your skills at Queen Mary is by applying to the SEED Award.

SEED stands for Student Enhanced Engagement and Development. The SEED Award recognises student contributions and aims to encourage students to engage with educational development across Queen Mary.

If you have worked on an activity relating to teaching or student learning, you can apply for a SEED Award. You’ll need to provide a written statement which outlines your contribution, together with an endorsement from a staff member.

The Award will even feature on your HEAR transcript!
