MyFuture is where we place all of the work experience and graduate opportunities notified to us. These are the employers targeting you as a Bath student. Log into MyFuture and go to Browse organisations. The list is arranged by business sector. Since this is an historical archive not all employers will have current vacancies but you will be able to see the frequency of their advertising e.g. once or several times a year.
Our Finding a graduate job guide (campus only) explains some strategies for looking for employers especially those who do not normally offer graduate training schemes, and how you can make your own contacts through developing your networks including some advice on how to use LinkedIn and Twitter.
Our catalogue has two sections worth looking at:
- Information resources for employer research lists employer guides and directories both hard copy and on-line
- Information resources for occupational research lists resources related to different job roles which may also provide details of typical employers or where to look for them
Employer directories are available free of charge to collect from our office at the start of the academic year. Some are general and others are for specific sectors. We normally receive free directories from these publishers:
