Careers and Enterprise are here to help you at every stage of your career journey, whether you are looking to explore your career options, acquire experience, showcase your skills or successfully transition into work, further study or your own business.
How we can help you in your first year…
Your first year is a great time to start exploring your career options. Maybe you have an idea about what you would like to do but want to learn more, or maybe you don’t have any ideas yet. You can find out about all of our services on the Careers and Enterprise website, but here are a few that might be useful to you:
Careers events and fairs - Attend Careers Fairs to find out more about the range of industries and graduate roles available.
Workshops - Have a look at career workshops for your academic school and see what’s upcoming that will help you explore career options.
QMentoring - Explore career ideas with a mentor from the Queen Mary alumni community or a UK-based professional.
QTaster - Gain insight into different companies and roles to discover what’s out there and what might suit you.
Enterprise services - Attend one of our enterprise activities that will help you discover if starting an enterprise is for you.
QTemps - Learn about the world of work and your own strengths and preferences as you gain paid temporary work around your studies.
Career Guidance - Discuss your career options with a careers consultant during a one-to-one appointment.
