5 ways you can use the Careers Service right now

Posted in: Careers Service Update

We may all be working remotely but the Careers Service is definitely still here to support you. Read on to find out the different ways you can use the Careers Service.

Most of these require you to log in to MyFuture.

For  current students use your single sign-on.

For graduates choose log in as a graduate - your username will be the one you had at Bath. Your email address will be whichever personal one you gave SAMIS when you registered as a student. If you have any difficulty contact us via careers@bath.ac.uk and we can help you get access.

1. Use our resources

We have over 300 resources on MyFuture covering all aspects of your career journey. From written guides and ebooks to video resources and event recordings, we've got you covered.

You can access the key resources through our resource essentials. Go to career resource essentials. 

Alternatively, you can browse the resources tab to see our full collection. Go to the resources tab.

We have also grouped together resources specifically relevant to the coronavirus pandemic. Go to coronavirus support and resources.

2. Book a remote appointment

We're offering our same excellent 1:1 appointments remotely.

There are two main types of appointments:

  • CV and application advice - including LinkedIn profiles and further study applications.
  • Careers Appointments for any careers-related query - from - I have no idea what I want to do through to I'm worried about an upcoming video interview and anything in between.

If you aren't sure if we can help - ask us! We will be happy to advise you. Worth bearing in mind though that we can't offer legal or visa advice.

At the moment, to access a remote appointment you need to email us: careers@bath.ac.uk. This gives us the opportunity to offer you resources and explain how the appointment will work.

Do bear in mind that we are developing our services all the time as we adjust to working remotely, so do keep checking back to MyFuture for our latest services. Go to our Coronavirus FAQ page.

3. Attend virtual events

4. Browse our opportunities board

While we are seeing fewer of them, jobs, work experience and internships are still being advertised and our opportunities board is a great place to look for these. We are often dealing directly with employers and we make sure every vacancy is accurate and has enough information for you to understand what you are applying for.

Alongside employment opportunities, we also advertise volunteering positions, scholarships and any virtual events we come across. So it is worth checking back regularly to see what has been added.

If you can't find what you are looking for our job search resources and our Advisers in an appointment can help you discover alternative strategies.
