Here for Life

Careers support for life

As a University of Huddersfield graduate, you can continue to access a range of support as part of our Here for Life offer, which includes our Careers Service, Enterprise Team and a range of alumni benefits, such as our LinkedIn alumni community.

Feeling confident about how to manage your career is important at any stage of your working life and this is why the support from our Careers Service is available to you on a lifelong basis, including one-to-one appointments with our advisers, central employer events on campus, careers workshops and online resources like our JobShop.

To get started with any of our resources, simply register for a graduate account with your contact information and details about your course and the year you graduated.


Career readiness

When it comes to your career as a graduate there are so many possibilities it can be hard to know where to begin. To help you navigate the careers support available to you as a graduate, we have broken down our resources into sections connected to six aspects of career readiness - Explore, Decide, Prepare, Apply, Develop and Reflect - which we explain in more detail in each section.

These sections do not have to be followed in a particular order, as the stage you find yourself at may change depending on the situation you find yourself in during your career. Career development is a lifelong process and it helps to be aware of all of the six stages and what they involve, so that you can feel empowered to successfully manage your own career journey. Whatever stage you are at in your career, wherever you are in the world, we're here to support you on your career journey.

This model describes the route to take during your exploration of careers and application to jobs: explore, decide, prepare, apply and develop
