Students studying at Solent University have access to a dedicated careers, employability and enterprise service - Solent Futures. We offer a range of services which can be accessed online. Our advice and support can help put you in the best possible position to pursue your dream career.
While you're studying we can support you with finding part-time work, volunteering experience and placements. We can check your CV, LinkedIn profile (or help you create one) and applications, as well as offering one-to-one guidance appointments. If you would like instant feedback on your CV, why not use CV360, our online CV checker on Solent Futures Online. Or if you have an interview coming up, check out Interview360 which will allow you to practice for an interview online.
Why not apply for a campus job where you could find part-time work and experience on campus? These roles are advertised on Solent Futures Online where we also promote opportunities outside of Solent, including part-time vacancies to help fund you while you study, work experience and graduate opportunities. Solent Futures Online offers advice on looking for work and lots of other useful information. Simply log in with your University email and password for lots of online hints and tips.
Look out for our employer events and employability and enterprise workshops which take place throughout the year. Details can be found on the Portal.
If you're looking to do freelance work or set up a business, we offer practical help and workshops to help you. Did you know that through Solent Futures you can pitch for business start-up funding and business support? Get in touch to find out more.
What next? We suggest you make contact with the team as soon as you can so we can support you with your CV and careers support from the start of your time at Solent. Our services are available online via email, or, once you're enrolled, you can book an employability or enterprise online appointment (MS Teams) via Solent Online Learning. We have a Solent Futures advice desk on campus where you can come and see us, if permitted.
We’re looking forward to working with you!
