Welcome to the Third Summer Term Finalist Newsletter!

Congratulations on reaching the end of your studies here at Loughborough University! You may be sorted out with your next step, but you may be wondering what to do. In Careers Network we understand that your studies, opportunities for placements & work experience, and your job hunting, have been disrupted by the pandemic. In recognition of this we are very pleased to tell you that the ongoing support from us has been extended from three to five years for you,
our 2021 graduates.
 So, what next?

When you are considering what to do after university, you may find your plans have been delayed or have changed due to Covid-19. Whatever your situation, what you do have now is time for reflection and research.
 What do you want from a job? What do you like/not like? What comes easily to you and what gives you energy? Book a careers consultation to talk this through with us and look at our website to Explore career options
 Use this time to really research ideas – this is vital so you can see what there is to choose from. Get started using the Job Profiles on Prospects Follow employers who you’d like to work for on social media, keep up-to-date with developments in the sector you’re interested in. Use LinkedIn to look at profiles. If you haven’t used LinkedIn before maybe now is the time to consider it?
Looking for temporary work?
If you’re looking for a temporary job to get some money coming in, consider who are the local employers in your area. Indeed is a great website to research vacancies (it even has grad roles on it) but just make sure you order these by date rather than relevance to get the most recent jobs.
Longer term plans
We are here to help you with applications for further study and graduate level jobs, but the above steps will get the ball rolling short-term.
Finalist First Event

We are repeating the ‘Finalists First: Finding a Job’ session on Tuesday 29th June at 12 noon. Hear about researching your options and where to look for vacancies. There will be a Question & Answer session at the end, so think what you would like to know and maximise what you get out of the event. If you missed this session in May then book on Careers Online via
Support for Finalists.

Finalists Survey

If you are considering what to do next and feel ready to use our support in the next few weeks, then please complete our short Finalists Survey. This survey is open until Sunday 4th July at 11:59pm and we will contact you shortly afterwards. Please access the survey here:
