Personal Advice

Guidance appointments give you the opportunity to discuss your particular set of circumstances with a careers consultant. You may want practical help with an application form or more general help in order to clarify the direction you want your career to take. All discussions are confidential and can be useful both to those who wish to remain within academia and those who want to move into other employment areas. 

Availability and how to book

30 minute appointments

These appointments can be booked up to two weeks in advance by phone, email, or in person. When booking, please state that you are a doctoral researcher or early career researcher.

Practice Interviews

Practice Interviews can be booked if you have an interview lined up. Please book up to two days in advance so that the Careers Consultant has time to prepare questions for you. To arrange a practice interview, please phone, email or come to the Careers Service in SL57. Please note: If you are late for an appointment we reserve the right to turn you away in order to minimize inconvenience to other users of the service.
