Getting started with King's Careers & Employability

I know it can be a lot when you are just starting your degree, but thinking about career planning and jobs is something that’s good to keep in mind. To help guide you in these considerations, pay attention to which modules you do best in and what you get excited about learning.

There are many potential jobs and careers to consider, so the sooner you start seeing what’s out there the more likely you will be to find the one for you. King’s Careers & Employability is a great platform to begin, or continue, your journey. A wonderful thing about careers at King’s is that they give you a great framework to use when considering careers, no matter how much (or how little) you have previously thought about your post-university work plan.

King's Careers Connect

I recommend you set up an account on King’s CareersConnect. There you’ll have access to services including the vacancy board, events calendar and appointment bookings for one-to-one appointments.


Sign up for the newsletter

Put your new CareersConnect login to good use. Sign up for their weekly newsletter. It will help you keep updated on upcoming workshops and panel discussions from different industry specialists and employers. 


Get advice on polishing your CV by signing up for the King’s Careers course on CV and cover letter writing. Even if you have never worked before, begin to think about your skills, knowledge and relevant experience and how you can apply these to your employability. If you get stuck or struggle knowing where to start, you can book a one-to-one meeting with the Careers team via King’s CareersConnect and get support.

Bonus tip

Additionally, being a King’s student gives you access to LinkedIn Learning, as well as a wealth of courses on KEATS and our training platform, SkillsForge, which are aimed at improving employability and helping you upskill whilst studying.
