For finalists

We want you to graduate from Queen Mary feeling confident about the future, having an idea of the careers you might like to pursue, and prepared to put your skills into action.


Small business, big opportunities

Often, students only apply to big graduate schemes for really big companies. We want to show you that there are other ways of getting a great job with plenty of opportunities for professional development.

There are lots of small to medium sized businesses with graduate vacancies, whether that's for an immediate start or as part of a graduate scheme - check them out on the Careers Hub.

Read this article to find out more about the benefits of working for an SME.


Enjoy learning? Try teaching!

If you enjoyed going along to seminars and lectures, why not take your passion for knowledge to the classroom?

Teaching is a great career where every day is different and you can learn just as much as the students!

Find out more about what teaching involves and how you can start the process of training as a teacher.

Check out our teaching vacancies by signing in to Careers Hub and filtering opportunities by 'Teaching and other educational activities'!


Skills to Succeed

It's really important that you take the time to develop skills for applying to graduate jobs. Skills like:

To enable you to develop these skills, we are running a series of careers workshops throughout Semester B. We strongly encourage you to come along to these events - they're worth it in the long run!


Graduate Success Team

While some students have places secured on graduate schemes before they leave university, some take a little bit longer to get a graduate job. Don't worry! The Graduate Success Team is here to support you throughout this process.

Once you have graduated, we will start to send you a Graduate Success newsletter featuring advice and opportunities from Michelle, David and Shofique.

You will be able to book appointments with Michelle and David, and attend exclusive graduate events organised by Shofique and Michelle.
