WBS CareersPlus service
We offer you a comprehensive pre-arrival, student, and alumni careers service. You will have access to one-to-one career guidance appointments, CV checks and tailored mock interviews.
Workshops & guidance
You will attend a half-day course-specific Career Essentials workshop covering CVs and application forms, looking for jobs, networking, interviews and assessment centres.
Additional workshops including networking, CVs and cover letters and assessment centres, are also provided throughout the year.
Masters in Business courses – Business in Practice
If you choose the Business in Practice route for your final assessment, rather than the traditional dissertation route, you will work in teams on a two-week business simulation, setting up and running your own virtual company and competing against other teams. Academic lectures, skills training and other activities will help you develop practical business skills that you can put into practice in the simulation. The Business in Practice route also offers you the opportunity to do a summer internship, which you will need to find yourself but with guidance and support from CareersPlus.
The University's graduate job site, MyAdvantage lists thousands of graduate job placements and internship opportunities throughout the year, as well as a range of other useful online resources.
We attract top class employers; big companies come directly to us because they are certain our graduates have the skills they need to make a difference to their organisation.
