I’m interested in work experience. What are my options?

Visit our drop-in service at Hugh Owen Library or book a guidance appointment with one of our Careers Consultants to discuss the various options and help available for finding work experience.

Look into ABERforward, a placement scheme run by the Careers Service, and check if you are eligible for the current scheme. You’ll also find details of any live placements in the ABERforward scheme listing on ABERcareers.

You might also be interested in Career Readiness Support, which is aimed specifically at students with little or no work experience, who also identify with characteristics that might mean they face barriers to finding employment.

Consider volunteering – you’ll find opportunities advertised on ABERcareers and we also recommend you look at the opportunities coordinated by the Students’ Union Volunteering team.

The How to get a job with no experience guide from Prospects will also be useful.
