Jobs & Work Experience
Perhaps now, more than ever, having good work experience is vital on your CV to demonstrate to employers that you have the skills they seek in their graduate recruits, e.g. business, customer awareness and good communication skills.
This section takes you through all the stages involved in gaining work experience and graduate jobs, by clicking on the links below.
The main advice in each of these sections is to START EARLY! Closing dates for applications for the most popular graduate jobs or work experience programmes can fall around Christmas, with other companies have "rolling closing dates" - ie the job vacancies remain open until the last place is filled. This can be unpredictable so we advise applying early to be in with the best chance.

The Careers Service spends a vast amount of time putting vacancies onto our database on a daily basis. These are searchable from our website, but you can also register to get email updates. The vacancy system is hosted by Prospects, which means that linking to vacancies may take you away from the main University of Aberdeen pages. The vacancies are still controlled by us to ensure they are relevant to our students.
Our virtual library is a searchable database of online career planning resources. Use the links below to find the resources related to Finding Jobs & Work Experience.
