Get Ready to Graduate

If you’re a finalist or recent graduate looking to explore your career options, build your confidence, or find out how to stand out to employers, then try our new Get Ready to Graduate Pathway.

Whether you’re at the application stage, have an interview lined up, or aren't sure what you really want to do or what options are available to you, the Get Ready to Graduate Pathway has resources and activities that cover all stages of your journey, in one handy place! 

The Pathway is really simple to follow. To access it:

  • log into MyCareer
  • click on the Pathways icon on the homepage, then on Preview in the Get Ready to Graduate Pathway
  • click on Start Now to begin, then complete the short registration form at the top

You don’t need to do all the activities listed (there are a lot!) - just select which ones you want to do and work through them at your own pace and in any order. You can return to the Pathway and continue at any time.

Dates for your diary

As part of the Get Ready to Graduate Pathway, we're running some live events: 

Get Ready to Graduate Recruitment Week

This is a week of online employer events and featured content from 4-7 May 2021, specifically for final year students and graduates.

This will give you the chance to meet and network with a range of employers, who all have live vacancies. If you're still looking for a graduate job, don't miss these events!

We'll be posting full details on MyCareer nearer the time and you'll be able to start registering from around 14 April.

Have a go at an assessment centre group activity

We're running a couple of online mock assessment centre sessions in May and June, where you can take part in a typical group exercise. The first session will take place on 26 May 2021, from 13:00 - 14:00.

You'll be able to book a place through MyCareer from 26 April 2021 to improve your confidence and gain a better understanding of what an assessment centre involves and what recruiters are looking for.
