Thinking about your future

Studying at university gives you opportunities to think about your future, and the skills you’ll need to work on to help you progress. Remember that your employability doesn’t just relate to what you do straight after university. Few people have a one track career, and you might find that yours is more varied than you expect.

To help you to develop your employability skills at university, a good strategy to follow is to:

  • explore your options
  • plan how you're going to gain the skills and experience you need
  • develop your skills and present these in the best way to suit the audience.

Experts at the University of Leeds Careers Centre and within your Faculty Employability teams can help you to make well-informed choices. Use MyCareer, the university’s dedicated Careers platform, to book appointments, find vacancies and sign-up to employability events.
