We know how challenging it is in the current economic climate to get that first job, and we are there to help you overcome that challenge.  As a University of Bolton graduate you can access FREE careers information, advice and guidance for up to three years after you graduate.  Even though you may have finished your studies at Bolton, the Careers Service is still available to help you with any career-related issue you may have.

This includes:

  • Applying for graduate schemes and internships
  • Directing you to relevant careers information and employer contacts
  • Helping you to research your career ideas
  • Providing feedback on you CV, covering letter or application form
  • Developing and assessing your employability skills

It doesn't matter if you are unsure about your future, or you want to explore other options; we can offer a range of support to suit all of your career needs.

No longer in Bolton?

If you are a recent graduate but no longer live in Bolton, you may be able to use another university's careers service, although there may be a charge involved.  In most cases, you may be able to use their career resources for free.

It may be wise to give them a ring before you make the journey, just to find out what level of service you are entitled to.  Click here for a list of university careers services.
