The Careers Team is made up of Careers Advisers, Employability Advisers and Trainers.

Careers Advisers

Each school/faculty has a designated Careers Adviser (see below) who you can speak with to explore your options and plan for your career. Thinking about life after LJMU will allow you to assess the options you have, the paths you can take, and give you time to prepare for the next step.  The Careers Advisers can show you what previous students from your course have gone on to do, what your subject area prepares you for and how to find out about particular jobs after graduation.  Careers Advisers are available to speak with if you want to explore ideas in depth.
