The Graduate Success team within Career Connect offer hyper-personalised support to our alumni for two years after graduation – on top of our lifetime support promise.  We know that our new graduates are worried that there are less jobs out there due to COVID, but we want to dispel that myth.  There are many opportunities available to you if you haven’t finalised your plans yet.  In fact, there are more jobs available now than before COVID!  The Graduate Success team can support you to find and apply for jobs and have access to graduate internships and discounted or subsidised further study.  Drop us an email at graduatehub@staffs.ac.uk and Holly, Rory or Vicky will be in touch.
