If are experiencing any difficulty in booking, please contact us as soon as possible.
Types of careers appointments
Please note: LSE students can book up to four careers discussions and/or CV or cover letter discussion appointments per term.
Preparing for an appointment
To get the most out of your appointment we recommend the following:
- Bring any supporting documentation eg a CV, cover letter, application form or some notes about your thoughts and ideas.
- Make good use of the many online resources available on the LSE Careers website.
- Attend career seminars on CVs and application forms in order to maximise your time with a careers consultant.
- A great starting point for any consultation is to think about what is most pressing and to do some background research.
Non attendance policy
Our events and appointments are oversubscribed and therefore it is important you always cancel your booking online as soon as you know you are unable to attend, so that another student is able to book.
If you fail to attend a total of four appointments and/or events during a two week period, your online booking privileges will be revoked for two weeks. During this period, if you want to book an appointment you must visit LSE Careers in person to do so.
The LSE Careers statement of service [pdf] outlines our commitment to LSE students and what we ask of them in return.
