Before you join LSE

LSE Careers is here to guide and support you throughout your time at LSE. We can help at every stage of the career process, from thinking about your career options for the first time to applying for jobs and securing offers. We also provide opportunities where you can meet, network, and learn from employers and alumni from different sectors and industries.

You may be wondering what careers focused activities, research and learning you can do before you begin your journey at LSE. To help you in this process we have created resources to introduce you to career planning, gain an understanding of how to research graduate opportunities, including recruitment processes and take practical steps to work on CVs, cover letters and applications. These resources highlight how LSE Careers works with you when you become a part of the LSE community.
