  • Employer-led: Employers come to King’s to share their insights into what they are looking for in the students and graduates who will become their future employees. Find out about specific skillsets, learn how to best present your employability to particular sectors or discover what it’s really like to do a particular job.
  • In your faculty or department: Careers Consultants who know all about your degree and your possible future career choices deliver workshops in most academic departments. They include everything from what career options are available for students on your degree to how to prepare for entry into specific careers. Some sessions are in curriculum, some are part of a specific extra-curricular programme. We also run a special programme for postgraduate research students.
  • Starting up on your own: We also run sessions for those interested in self-employment and support the King’s Entrepreneurship Institute in their development of future entrepreneurs. Find out more about their programme at the Entrepreneurship Institute webpages.
