University of Sunderland in London student at a job interview

Life as a University of Sunderland in London student can go quickly, even in lockdown. Before you know it, you’ll be finishing your studies and looking for your first job as a graduate. Finding your first graduate role needs a lot of drive and determination. 

Another important part of getting your first graduate job is preparation. We’ve teamed up with the East London Business Alliance (ELBA) to create loads of online training opportunities to help you get ready for your future career. 

Your CV and LinkedIn Profile

Having the skills to create an effective CV and LinkedIn profile will help you get the job interview you want after you graduate. They’re also skills that will help you through your whole working life. You can get professional feedback on your CV and LinkedIn profile at ELBA’s surgeries:

Preparing for Job Interviews

Not many of us look forward to job interviews, but it is possible to learn the skills to give you more confidence. ELBA is offering mock interview practise to improve your skills through video chat and telephone. This is a chance to get expert professional feedback and advice without going through the stress of an actual interview.

Visit the East London Business Alliance for more information on how they’re helping University students like you get the jobs they want. For personalised advice, book a one-to-one appointment with our Careers and Employability service. Find out more by following #WeAreSunLon on FacebookTwitter and Instagram.
