2018 Graduates: Fast Forward Your Career

Fast Forward is the Career Zone campaign to promote careers support for students graduating in 2018. Fast Forward runs from the start of the summer term and continues long after graduation. If you are completing your course in 2018, why not take advantage of a fantastic range of services available before, and after, you leave. These will help you with your career planning and taking the next steps to work or further study. Click on the links below to see the different services and activities available.

In particular, you may want to book an appointment with a Careers Consultant to talk about any careers related issue and see how we are able to help.

Don't forget, you have access to all of the support available through Career Zone, including our online services, for 3 years after graduation.

Get some individual and tailored careers advice - especially if you are unsure about what to do. Phone 01392 72 4493 for an appointment (Exeter) or 01326 25 3735 (Penryn). We can offer apointments face to face and via phone or Skype.

The Career Mentor Scheme is a unique opportunity for recent graduates, to be matched with an experienced professional for 6 months to gain one-to-one careers advice, support and guidance into their profession and sector.

As a graduate of the University of Exeter you are welcome to return to Exeter to join us at any of our career fairs, delivered in Exeter and in Penryn. 

The eXepert scheme provides students and recent graduates the opportunity to contact University alumni to gain advice on how to enter their chosen sector, work for a certain company, start a business, or extend their professional network.

Fifteen months after graduating you will be asked to complete the Graduate Outcomes Survey to find out what you've been doing since you left us. We'd really appreciate you filling this in as this information is important to the University and to prospective students researching their options. More information about the Graduate Outcomes Survey can be found here.
