NTU's Employability Team will also support you for three years after you've graduated, providing CV, application and interview support, as well as ideas and advice for job applications, further study, self-employment or 'year out' planning.

Current students and graduates: go to Employability Online for advice, contacts, self-help resources, employer videos, a CV Resource pack, the Interview Simulator, employability skills courses, and more. 

Employability events

As your current course at NTU draws to a close, we have a series of events and workshops to ensure you leave us feeling prepared.

Assess your readiness with our employability checklist. Or, contact us for help with career ideas, finding jobs, applying, interviews, LinkedIn, postgraduate study, and more.

Employability Online

Use our online self-help toolkit, which features a CV builder, our Interview Simulator, employer video advice, and online courses (such as leadership, decision-making, meetings management) and more.

Get LinkedIn

89% of all recruiters report having hired someone through LinkedIn. Let us help you get LinkedIn to access the hidden and global job market.

Postgraduate study

Have you considered further studies? A postgraduate course could be the ideal way to enhance your employability in today's highly competitive jobs market.

NTU offers a wide variety of postgraduate courses across all schools. If you choose to continue on to postgraduate studies with us, all current NTU students and alumni receive the added benefit of a 25% discount.  

Keep us posted about your graduate journey

One way to keep us posted is to complete the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey, which you will be invited to complete a few months after graduation. It only takes a few minutes to complete, but can make a world of difference to both future NTU students and the reputation of the University itself - which can in turn have a positive effect on your own future success.
