We’ll help you explore career options that match your skills and interests; support you to narrow down your choices to find the right career fit for your personality and enable you to develop the skills and experience you need to break into your chosen industry or sector.
It’s never too early to start planning your career.

If you have no idea what your next step will be after you leave Queen’s, don’t panic.
Many students need guidance when it comes to steering their career plan. The first step is research. This includes self-research – finding out who you are, what makes you tick and what you can offer an employer.
Next, research what job titles and sectors might suit you. Get inspired by previous graduates and use the alumni tool on LinkedIn to follow the career paths of others from your course. An impartial Careers Consultation can help you flex beyond your subject and open up your options, while this Career Planner tool can help your prioritise skills you’d like to use in a job. Careers events and programmes can offer further insight.
Once you know a bit more about yourself and the roles that interest you, you will be much better placed to identify where you want to be and set goals to help you get there.
Finding out more about specific careers that interest you – both through networking with people in similar roles and researching employers online – can help you narrow down your choices. Now is the time to assess what skills you will need to land the role you want and to look at how you can develop those skills.
Once you have established your career goals, it’s time to plan how you can achieve them.
