Careers advice for Master’s students

A guest post by Dr Sophia Donaldson, Careers Consultant

King’s Careers and Employability is here to assist you with all things career-related. In the Macadam Building (Strand), you’ll find a dedicated information team ready to help you navigate our comprehensive careers library. One-to-one appointments with careers consultants are available across all King’s campuses, where you can discuss career planning, have your CV checked, or practice for an upcoming interview.

We bring employers onto campus to meet students at careers fairs and forums, and to co-facilitate our King’s Leadership and Professional Skills Award, a 10-week course aimed at developing and selling the skills employers want.  We also work within departments to provide a range of services tailored to the particular needs of PGT students, including evening careers spotlight sessions, workshops on marketing MScs to employers, and credit-bearing internship modules.

You can check out what’s on offer in your department using our events calendar, but keep an eye on your emails, departmental plasma screens and KEATS as well.
