I do not have any idea what I want to do when I leave Leeds Trinity - where do I start?
You could start by doing Prospects Career Planner, a computerised guidance system available at www.prospects.ac.uk
You could then book in to see a Careers Adviser - About the Careers Service.
At level 4 & 5 you will have Career Management skills sessions run by Careers Advisers planned into your timetable which will help you to start to consider your options. At level 6 you may want to go to some of the campus talks - check the intranet or moodle for more information.
I want to go on to further study but do not know how, when and where to apply. What should I do?
There are a number of things you can do.
Go to Postgraduate Study & Research on our website.
Pick up the booklet 'Postgraduate Study and Finance' from the Careers Information Room.
Look at the Prospects website for Postgraduate study.
Look at the Postgraduate directories in the Careers Information Room and the on-line course pages. You need to find out what kind of course you need to do for your chosen career area where they are run and how you will fund it.
All the methods above will help. You may also want to book an appointment with a Careers Adviser - see About the Careers Service to discuss your options.
For help with CVs, application forms and cover letters, visit the Prospects website.
Remember - each time you apply for a job, your CV and cover letter should be customised to fit the job description. The Careers Service can offer practical help on getting these things right - see 'About the Careers Service'.
I am in my final year and I want to start looking for jobs. Where do I look?
Go to - 'Finding Work' on our website. If you are unsure which methods to use to job search, check with a Careers Adviser - see 'About the Careers Service' or look for information on your chosen job on 'Prospects - Explore types of jobs'.
I want to travel in my job. How do I find out more?
Do you mean you want a job based overseas, a job with the possibility of short periods abroad or with UK travel nationally, regionally or locally?
Do you need and/or have any foreign language skills and how would travel affect your family or social life? (To find more about Using Your Language Skills read the AGCAS information booklet of the same name, available from the Careers Infomation Room or on the Prospects website).
Some careers may offer a greater likelihood of overseas work (eg international finance or export marketing) and some organisations (eg multinationals or those with a strong export record) are more likely to offer opportunities than others.
Read the AGCAS information booklet Working Abroad (available from the Careers Infomation Room or on the Prospects website). If you want to travel and fund your travel by doing seasonal part-time work, see some of the books we have in the Careers Information Room on working and travelling abroad.
Information on all initial teacher training options can be found on the Teaching Agency website.
If you need help or advice about which route to take or completing your application, make an appointment to see a Careers Adviser (see About Us).
