Job hunting and careers

Finding a job can be hard work. As if writing a cover letter and getting your CV right wasn't enough, then you have to go through a nerve-wracking interview process! In the library we have information about job hunting, CVs, cover letters, and careers.

Keep an eye out for workshops run at IPU for you to get personalised help with your CV and how to behave in a job interview.
