Our How to... guides provide a summary of key resources that can help you prepare in advance of talking to a careers adviser.
Speak To Someone for Advice, Guidance or Information
Careers Advice and Guidance: You can talk to a careers adviser during a 15 minute appointment. If the issues raised require a careers appointment (45 minutes), the careers adviser can arrange this with you.
We also offer an Advice by Email service to University of Bristol graduates during the first three years after graduation as well as current students on a Year-Out (e.g. in industry, language students abroad).
Careers Information: If you are trying to track down some information and can't find it on our Browse Resources tool, please ask one of our Information Specialists at the Resources Help Desk.
JobShop / Part-Time Work: If your query relates specifically to finding part-time work please see JobShop our dedicated service for students seeking term-time or vacation work.
