How the Early Careers
team can support you

  • Career advice
  • Skills sessions
  • Entry-level opportunities

Career advice

When you partner with us, we care about who you are. We understand your talents, experience, values, and goals. We see your potential. This means we can advise you on the industries, companies, and roles that will be a great fit.

We only share relevant career opportunities and are ready to advise on how the job market is behaving, hiring trends and salary insights. Our Early Careers experts listen to what you need and will answer all your questions.

We know how crucial interview feedback is in succeeding. We provide personalised and constructive feedback, highlighting what went well and assisting with areas for improvement.

Skills sessions

We offer a range of skill development sessions, both in-person and virtually, designed to enhance your professional range and focus on the value of workplace skills and how to apply them. All to help you prepare for employment and future success. Some of these skill-based sessions include:

CV writing workshops

  • Learn the value of a well-written CV, common mistakes professionals make creating theirs, best practices to keep it updated, and most importantly, how to create a CV that appeals to your future employers.

Interview preparation

  • We guide you on your presentation and conversation skills, conducting mock interviews using real-life interview questions and scenarios. We will help you feel confident and business-ready for the real thing.

Personal branding and networking

  • Receive mentorship from our Classroom to Boardroom Foundation Student Network. A global network of young professionals who can share their experiences and useful tips. We hold regular networking events exclusively for our students, alumni and partner firms to share knowledge.

Entry-level opportunities

We offer work experience programmes and internships with our global partner firms so you can gain real world, professional experience, sharpen your new skills and get a feel for an industry you want to work in. Work experience programmes range from one day to two weeks and provide a mix of workshops and insight sessions, as well as on-the-job learning.

We aim to match you and your potential with a specific firm or sector. Many of our interns gained full-time employment and have gone on to work their way up to successful senior positions with their placed firms.

We cover a wide range of industries globally, meaning we can advise you on roles that you may not have considered, or even knew about. Within our partnering firms, we have made placements within start-ups, corporates, HR, marketing, sales and communications, investment, technology, and across the financial and professional services.
