Get informed... Careers Events at Imperial Find out about the graduate job market The graduate job market is competitive, and employers are very selective in who they will recruit. They are looking for a good degree result, work experience and your ability to evidence your skills effectively - both in applications and in person. While most recruiters will try to maintain a presence on campus, this does not always reflect their recruitment plans. Therefore, the level of on campus activity by employers does not always reflect the condition of the graduate recruitment market. One of the most important factors to remember is that Imperial College is consistently one of the most targeted institutions in the UK. You are therefore well-placed to benefit from the opportunities offered by graduate employers. One of your most valuable assets, both now and in the future, will be your Imperial College degree. Nevertheless, it is important to understand the importance of work experience. Of increasing significance in securing a graduate role is the summer internship. A large number of recruiters run 8-12 week summer internship programmes, which often form a large base for their graduate intake in the following year. Competition for jobs remains extremely high and it is therefore important for you to prepare well and make yourself stand out.

Get advice from the Careers Service Make yourself as attractive to employers as possible by taking advantage of all the opportunities at university and outside. Work experience, voluntary work and involvement in student societies can give you the evidence you need to prove to employers that you have the skills they’re looking for. Learn how to articulate what you have to offer, both in writing and verbally. Employers only know what you tell them and the selection process will be competitive. If you don’t put your case across convincingly, you could be beaten to a job by someone less qualified but who has written a better application or comes across better at an interview. Remember that the big recruiters you see quoted in the media are just the tip of the iceberg. The vast majority of graduates don’t get jobs with these companies - and never have. Most work for smaller organisations in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. You’ll need to be proactive to find these openings.

Get ahead of the game Many employers, especially the larger graduate recruiters, will set early closing dates or will be recruiting on a rolling programme, which means that often it can be a “first come, first served” basis. Don’t leave your job search too late. This is especially important if you are studying at Imperial on a 1-year MSc course and you wish to enter employment on completion of your studies. You will have to be prepared to apply as you arrive! The Careers Service organises an extensive programme of employer-based events each year to help connect you with opportunities. Don’t forget to register with JobsLive to ensure you are always up-to-date with our events, and the vacancies posted by employers. Visit www.imperial.ac.uk/careers/services/events

‘Focus on...’ Sector Weeks Are you looking for something a bit different? Are you interested in a career in the environment sector? Have you got a great idea for a product or service? Or are you more interested in the Charity Sector? If so, the events detailed on this page may be of interest to you! We will be running a week-long programme for each of these areas, each with a range of events, workshops and appointments with professionals from the sector.

Focus on... Environment (w/c 29 Oct 2018) A week of events helping you explore and learn more about careers in the environment sector. A series of talks from professionals will cover the career opportunities in the sector including environmental impact assessment, regulation, policy advising, conservation and waste management.

Focus on... SME/Enterprise Week (w/c 19 November 2018) Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) have a range of opportunities to rival the graduate recruitment schemes and other graduate roles offered by larger organisations. The SME and Enterprise Week 2018 will see a range of companies, such as start-ups, SMEs, and entrepreneurs discuss topics and deliver sessions to help you explore the opportunities available and to connect with diverse and interesting organisations.

Focus on... Science Communication and Policy (w/c 21 January 2019) This week will see a selection of events to get you started in a career in the science communication sector, and give you more information to help you decide if this sector is for you. There will be workshops on gaining an internship in this sector, talks from professionals and the chance to learn more. If this sounds like it’s for you get involved!

Focus on... NFP/Charity Week (w/c 28 January 2019) There is a lot more to charities than volunteering and our Not-for-Profit and Charity Week 2019 will allow you to delve into this vast sector. The series of events will provide you with a chance to see what this highly rewarding industry has to offer and to learn about the range of opportunities available.

Focus on... Data & Analytics Week (w/c 11 February 2019) A week of events exploring careers in Big Data and analytics designed to help you decide if a career in this growing industry is for you. There will be plenty of opportunities to speak to professionals within the industry and gain inside knowledge. For further information and booking for all of the above, please visit the Careers website.

Careers Cafés Throughout the academic year 2018-19 Careers Cafés are informal, small group discussion sessions that cover a wide variety of topics. They are led by a member of the Careers Service who has an interest and some expertise in that area. Occasionally experts from within a sector will be invited to lead the Careers Café giving you the benefit of their experience. This is an excellent way to gain some insider tips about entry routes into your area of interest. The structure will vary from session to session, however, they are very much discussion-based and offer the opportunity for you to raise questions to the rest of the group, as well as to the facilitator. To book your place at the next Careers Café, visit JobsLive.

Psychometric tests Psychometric tests are widely used by graduate recruiters because they give an objective measure of a specific aptitude or ability. They are based on rigorous scientific research and take the form of structured written or computer-based exercises, often using multiple-choice questions. They are designed to assess your reasoning abilities and how you respond to different situations.

Aptitude tests

The most commonly used of these are verbal, numerical, logical and diagrammatic reasoning tests, as well as Situational Judgement Tests which measure your behaviour and attitudes to work-related scenarios. These tests are all timed. If you are asked to sit an aptitude test and it is your first time, then you are strongly advised to do some practice tests online and use the reference books and materials available in the Careers Service. Tests are available at www.imperial.ac.uk/careers/psychometrictests.

Personality inventories

Employers may use personality tests to assess if you have the personal qualities for the role as different jobs require different attributes. These can be used to assess aspects of your individual behaviour, attitudes and opinions, as well as your motivation, interests and values. Personality questionnaires are not timed and feel less like an exam. There are no ‘right’ answers and it is best to be honest when doing these.

Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) - Personality Inventory The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTIÂŽ) is a psychological instrument that looks at your preferred way of doing things, including gathering information, making decisions and how you communicate with others. The understanding gained from doing the MBTI can help you in your career planning and decision-making in the future. The MBTI is not used in the selection process by employers. The Careers Service offers a series of workshops for the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) once a term. Further details can be found at www.imperial.ac.uk/careers/mbti.

Careers & Disability The Careers Service is regularly contacted by employers with regard to specific opportunities for students and graduates with a disability or long-term health condition. If you are interested in receiving email notifications about these opportunities then you can adjust your preferences in your JobsLive profile to receive the Opportunity Update email at www.imperial.ac.uk/careers/jobslive.

Access to Employment

We run an annual event where students can meet recruiters and diversity champions from leading organisations who are committed to disability recruitment. In 2018-19, Access to Employment will be held on 20 March 2019. For further information on this and similar events, please sign up to the email notifications as detailed above.

Events

Careers Fairs Throughout the recruitment year we hold a number of Careers Fairs to provide you with the opportunity to meet recruiters and find out about the programmes on offer from different organisations.

Companies recruiting... Departmental Contacts The Careers Service works very closely with each department, and we often give careers lectures organised by your department. Some of these are timetabled and some are voluntary. Each lecture is tailored to your department and is a great additional source of information. All sessions are advertised via your department, so keep an eye on your department noticeboards and webpages. Each department also appoints a Departmental Careers Adviser (DCA), who should be your initial contact if you wish to pursue a higher degree or a career related to your studies.
