UC Careers, Internships & Employment

Whether you are half way through your first year at uni, right in the middle, or nearing the end of your degree, UC Careers, Internships & Employment can provide the support and guidance you may need. One of the great services that the folks at UC Careers offer is careers advice.

Firstly, you can book a 20 minute express appointment on CareerHub here: http://www.canterbury.ac.nz/careers/ (once logged in, go to ‘Appointments’ on the left hand side). These are suited for any students who need help and advice with:

  • Course planning
  • Degree options
  • CVs and job application forms
  • Interview preparation
  • Searching for jobs
  • Applying for positions through the Student and Graduate Recruitment Programme.

So if you need a bit of extra support to find your way, don’t hesitate to call UC Careers and talk to them. They won’t bite I promise!

Also you can book a Career Counselling Session for a one-on-one meeting with a Career Consultant. This could settle your worries about any course or career concerns and answer questions including: “What can I do with my degree once I leave UC?” And “What are my postgraduate study options?”. These appointments can also be booked online, on the UC CareerHub website.

Also there is a very helpful UC Careers information page which provides various information about all the degrees and majors offered at UC. By choosing your degree/major from the list you can receive information about: the skills that the degree/subject provides, where graduates in the field have been employed, what those positions involve, and further study options.
I myself found this very useful and believe you will too! Check it out at http://www.canterbury.ac.nz/careers/subjects/index.shtml

Good luck!
