Jobs after graduation

Graduate training schemes

Our Finding a graduate job guide (campus only) has a section on graduate training schemes and how to find them. You can also pick up a copy from our office.

MyFuture

MyFuture is the University of Bath's own job opportunities service. Many employers will use this to let you know about thir graduate jobs. We are targeted by many employers because of the quality of our courses and students. We add opportunities every week-day throughout the year.

  • You can search by keyword, career area, type of industry and location.
  • Browse and search for organisations which have advertised with us in the past.

Other graduate job listing websites

The University of Bath has good relationships with a wide range of employers but not all employers choose to contact individual university careers services to advertise. Below is a list of a few key websites that would be worth keeping an eye on, but there are many more websites specific to particular job sectors. Check the Find out about occupations page for resources to help you identify them, or ask one of our team for help.

Research your own vacancies

You can also identify and research companies you'd like to work for which may not advertise in MyFuture nor the other websites mentioned. There are plenty of employers who rely on the reputation of their company and don't bother advertising much or who choose to advertise in other places. Some of these resources include:

  • Information resources for employer research is a section of our catalogue that lists employer guides and directories available in the Information Room, as well as links to useful online resources.
    Employer directories are included here - at the start of the academic year we have copies for you to take away, and we hold reference copies all year round.
  • University Library
    The Library has a range of business resources covering UK, overseas and smaller/local employers, plus a selection of company reports. These are useful for finding company information. See the Library's 'Management' webpage for links.

Other graduate jobs

Some sectors like PR agencies, environmental consultancies, web designers, biotechnology companies, the not for profit sector and small businesses are less likely to advertise 'graduate training schemes' but do offer jobs suitable for a graduate. Some employers may not always specify they want a graduate however the role may be a usual stepping stone into that field or your skills and education will make you suitable. Our Finding a graduate job guide (campus only) presents a number of different strategies you can use to find these kinds of jobs.

Networking and creative job hunting

It's often said that 70% of vacancies are never advertised. Whether the figure is accurate or not, many employers fill vacancies without advertising them. Advice about how to use networking and creative job hunting techniques is included in our Finding a graduate job guide (campus only).

Self-employment, enterprise and entrepreneurship

More graduates than before are setting up their own business after university or during their studies. If you’re considering being one of them, our page on his topic has lots of useful information and links to sources of advice and support both inside and outside the University.

Job offers and contracts

The job offers and contracts guide describes what constitutes a job offer, problems you may encounter, and accepting and declining offers. If you are suspicious about a job offer you have received, see our guide on How to avoid job fraud for advice.
