LSE Careers summer events and services

We are open all summer!

LSE Careers is open throughout the summer, offering the possibility to book one-to-one appointments with careers consultants and access our services wherever you might be. We are running a summer events programme with campus-based seminars and skills workshops as well as webinars and an undergraduate chat. We’ll be covering some of the basics in our Applications afternoon, reviewing how to network online in our session on LinkedIn, giving you an opportunity to practice your interview skills, or just spend some time thinking about what it is you’d like to do next. See below for the complete list and details on each of our sessions.
