Careers Service

Information resources

The Careers Service (SL62) contains a wide ranging collection of career related information, including take away material. We also have an Information Manager who is a specialist in the information contained within the library, and who spends time researching relevant literature and produces useful material for students.

The Information Room contains a range of resources that are organised according to the following themes:

  • Explore your options - resources to help you think about what you might like to do and what you might want from your career.
  • Job roles and sectors -  information and reference material on graduate occupations and SOAS-specific sectors.
  • Postgraduate study and funding - information on postgraduate courses and funding my further study in the UK and internationally.
  • Working outside the UK - information and books on working internationally.
  • Job hunting - advice about the job hunting process, including how to write CVs and applications, and prepare for interviews and psychometric tests.
