From Monday 5th to Friday 30th March 2012, the OU Careers Advisory Service is running an online forum for postgraduate students wanting to plan their next career steps.  The forum is moderated by three careers advisers and is an opportunity for you to share advice, thoughts and experiences regarding the career opportunities open to you with a postgraduate qualification.  You can post a question, provide help to other postgraduate students, or just come in and browse.

This forum will provide an excellent chance to ask about and discuss a whole range of topics such as:

  • What next after your postgraduate qualification
  • How to investigate your career choice and career change options
  • Where to find job vacancies
  • How to get relevant work experience or network more effectively
  • How to sell your qualification, skills, experience etc. to employers

To access the forum go to the Careers Workspace using your OU computer username and password.

The forum will be open for four weeks and then become read-only for a further 12 months.

We hope to see lots of postgraduate students on the forum as this is a great opportunity to get your questions answered by a qualified careers adviser.
