Surrey Pathfinder


During the autumn and spring semesters we offer students a wide range of employer-led skills workshops and careers fairs. The sessions cover key employability skills such as interview techniques, video interviews, assessment centre workshops, networking practice, CV writing and using social media apps such as LinkedIn to find graduate roles.

Professional Training placements

Our Professional Training placement programme gives students unique access to the world of work as part of their degree. Many students also choose to take a placement abroad with many going to Europe, North America, Asia and Australasia.

Working with employers

We strive to work together with our industry partners to understand your individual recruitment needs and help you to meet your business objectives through our talent pool.
