QMU introduces new ‘Careers Advice for Life’ service

By Press Office

Our campus-based Careers and Employability team is extending its service by offering QMU students and graduates free ‘Careers Advice for Life’.

Most universities only offer their students a free careers advice service up to three years after graduation, but as part of QMU’s robust employability and development strategy, QMU alumni can now look forward to continued specialist support from the University’s team of careers specialists.

QMU’s Careers and Employability team helps and supports students throughout their studies and after graduation, whether they are looking to find part-time employment, voluntary work, relevant work experience or graduate employment.

QMU also has close links with professional bodies and its courses are constantly adapted to meet the changing needs of employers, students and society as a whole.

Commenting on new ‘Careers for Life’ service, Marion Pollock, Careers Adviser from QMU, said: “We recognise that our graduates embark on a lifelong careers journey, so we want to take our existing service a step further by providing them with advice and support for life.

“Whether our students are still studying, recently graduated or part way through their career, QMU’s dedicated team of professional staff is now equipped to offer continued assistance.

“We encourage students and graduates to make the most of the service provided so that they are confident and able effectively to market their knowledge, skills and experience to potential employers in a changing jobs market.”
