Graduates

As a graduate from the University of Surrey, you are entitled to further support from the Employability and Careers Centre as you begin or advance on your career ladder.

Surrey Pathfinder

To continue to access our Employability and Careers services, you will need to update your Surrey Pathfinder account to Alumni status.

You can do this from today:

Step one: Retain access to our job search portal, events and careers appointments.

Please make sure you enter your student number and a non-University email address, as your University email will no longer work after graduation.

Step two: Retain access to our rich catalogue of career development tools, resources and industry links.

How do you prepare to start a new job?

Amongst the feelings of excitement and enthusiasm starting a Graduate Scheme, Placement or any job can be a nerve wracking experience (it’s natural to feel this way!).

But you can combat the nerves by feeling prepared and our ‘Business Skills’ module on Surrey Pathfinder can help you to feel ready for the world of work.

Explore characteristics of effective leaders, get to grips with preparing and organising meetings and learn about how to deliver a successful presentation.

There are plenty of resources on Surrey Pathfinder about work readiness and our Careers Ambassador Holly provides an insight in our recent blog.
