Your Career Plan

A career plan helps you identify your skills and interests, what career will best suit your talent and abilities, as well as what skills and training you will need for your chosen career.

By developing a career plan, you can focus on what you want to do and how you will get there. You can download a template and advice from the Careers and Enterprise Online Hub.

Your Skills

Before starting your graduate job search, consider your talents, skills, abilities and experience, that combined create a package that sets you apart from others.

You have your degree certificate (or will do very soon!). Regardless of subject, there are some generic skills and strengths that you may have gained from any degree course you have undertaken. These are often referred to as transferrable skills, or employability skills.

The University has a set of ‘Graduate Attributes’, that if you have made use of opportunities through your time at the University, you will have been able to develop. To explore these Graduate Attributes and how you have developed them, please see the Graduate Attributes webpage.
