Are you finishing your degree at Bristol this summer?  

It’s been a tough couple of years for Finalists, but you’ve done so well to get through to the other end. Everyone at the Careers Service wants to pass on a huge congratulations for making it here.

As a graduate of the University of Bristol, you can use all of our careers support services for up to three years after the end of your studies. It’s absolutely worthwhile making use of our information and guidance – we’re here for you, after all.  

It can be easy to feel lost if you aren’t someone who has a lifelong dream to pursue, or a graduate role secured. If you’ve figured out your career or future study, that’s wonderful. We have plenty of resources you can access, like these tips on starting your new job, or these tips on working from home. And if you aren’t sure how to get started, that’s okay, too!  

If you’ve read many of the posts on this blog, you’ll know that life after graduation can go in all sorts of directions. There’s no linear path to follow now – careers can come in many different ways and don’t always go to plan – so if you need a hand, you can always come to us.  

Even if you’ve never even logged into the Careers Service website, now isn’t too late. If you’d like a guide of what we have to offer, you can start with the Career Ready Course. There are three pathways you can follow, based on the stage you’re at with your career. The pathways will guide you to the resources you’ll find most useful. 

 The Careers Service offers all our services online, so it’s easy to access support wherever you are and whenever you need it. If you take a look at mycareer, you’ll find you can:

Once again, congratulations on getting here – here’s to the next steps of your career journey, whatever they may be.
