About the Careers Sessions

The School provides a series of ‘Preparing for Part one / year in practice’ careers events for Year 3 students. These are delivered with the University Careers Service. The sessions focus on preparing and informing students not only how to reflect on their skills and experience to date but also how to achieve success in the job market.

The series includes: 

  1. Recognising my skills and preparing to apply: including characteristics of the part 1 jobs market, and finding suitable opportunities, networking/speculative applications. 
  2. CV and covering letter applications and interview skills. Innovative practical insight into how practices really select from students’ CVs, plus discussion of interview techniques, salary negotiation, and how to cope with rejection and develop resilience.
  3. Alternatives to architecture – round table discussion with students interested in considering other options with examples of related career areas and practical suggestions. 

First hand live insights from current and former students are also included throughout. These   highlight and build upon established  and respected  relationships of our school within practice and industry.
