Support for alumni
UH support for recent graduates and alumni
The Careers and Placements Service is happy to help University of Hertfordshire graduates in their job search for up to 2 years after the course ends.
We offer one to one support to assist you with a job search strategy, develop an effective CV and covering letter, get help with application forms or practice interview skills – we can work with you to help you achieve your goal whatever you choose to do.
One to one support
There are a range of options available to you; contact Careers and Placements to book yourself in:
- Quick query - book a one to one appointment with a Careers Adviser either in person, by Skype or by phone.
- CV/application review – you can book a one to one appointment to get your CV checked or you can send in your CV or application form to us: visit CareerHub for details. Please allow up to 3 working days for a response for the latter.
- Practice interviews – book a 30 minute one to one appointment with a Careers Adviser for a practice interview either in person, by Skype or by phone.
