Maybe you know where you want to go and are ready to start applying for roles, or perhaps you’ve barely even thought about the word ‘career’ since writing your personal statement. Wherever you’re at, LSE Careers is here to help you find your place – whether that’s a role, a sector, an interest, or simply familiarising yourself with the LSE campus and the support available to you.
This page is your overview of Michaelmas Term 2022 at LSE Careers, from how you can find out about getting into a particular sector, to seeking help with your application materials, to where you can look for job vacancies and internships. We hope you enjoy the term and look forward to meeting you soon.
This term, you can join us to explore different sectors, work on your professional skills, better understand your career goals, and speak to a range of employers about upcoming recruitment opportunities. The majority of our events will be on campus this term, and we've picked out a few highlights for you below...
Discover different sectors (including those you may not yet have considered!)
Our Sector Discovery programmes showcase a selection of resources, opportunities and flagship events to help you explore your options across a particular sector. Each programme is designed with the needs of a particular area in mind, so exactly what's on offer will vary from programme to programme.
Across Michaelmas Term 2022, you can join us for any part of the following sector-specific programmes:
Bookings for the events running as part of each Sector Discovery programme will open on a different date dependent on when the events are running, so keep an eye on your emails and our social media for the 'bookings open' announcements.
Boost your professional skills (from writing your CV, to interviewing well.)
In addition to our sector-specific events, LSE Careers also hosts a range of workshops to equip you with the skills to succeed. These include:
- CV, cover letter and applications workshops - including Applications Day on 1 October 2022;
