Everything you need to know about Careers & Employability

Inside the Career Studio

The Careers and Employability team are here to provide you with all the help and support that you’ll need to make the most of your time at university, and to keep you moving forward as you prepare for your graduate career.

Our support for students is focused around three themes, helping you to Explore, Connect, and Apply – so that, no matter what stage you’re at in your career thinking, the team are here to help.

Introducing the Career Studio

Peer-to-peer learning is at the heart of what we do. Our fully trained Career Coaches are students just like you, and provide online and face to face support with all aspects of planning your career journey and applying for jobs.

The team are based in the Career Studio on University Square, which is open Monday to Friday, with no appointment necessary – so that you can drop-in whenever is best for you.

Careers Fairs and employability activities

This year we’re excited to be launching a new Employability Day on 4 October, and welcoming back our big Careers Fair to campus on 18 October. Look out for more information in our weekly emailed newsletter that you’ll receive every Monday during term-time.

You can also keep up to date by following us on social media, whether that’s Twitter, Instagram, Tiktok or Linkedin.

During your time at university you will also benefit from lots of curriculum-based careers and employability support, as well as opportunities to take part in many extra-curricular opportunities and to connect with leading employers.

Handshake – your careers platform

University of Liverpool students also have access to Handshake, our online careers platform. Handshake offers access to exclusive employer events, interactive careers resources, and allows you to search and apply for placements, internships, part-time jobs, and graduate vacancies.

Once you’ve set up your online profile you will receive personalised job and event recommendations based on your interests, and can also connect to fellow students, employers, and alumni as part of the Liverpool Handshake community.
