Connect with your future

Whether you already know where you want to go or you’ve barely even thought about the word ‘career’ since writing your personal statement, LSE Careers can help you connect with your future.

Through LSE Careers' range of events, opportunities, resources, and appointments, you can...

  • connect with yourself, your interests and your motivations, so you can shape a fulfilling future that aligns with these.
  • connect with LSE alumni, so you can explore whether different sectors might be for you, broaden your network, and discover how to make the most of your time at LSE.
  • connect with employers, so you can explore opportunities open to you, identify skills you need to develop to stand out, and find work during your time at LSE and beyond.
