For Graduates

Your journey with Aston doesn’t have to end with graduation…

You probably think that's it from us once you've graduated. You've flown the Careers+Placements nest. But that's not the case, friend. We've got your back for the next three years!

How can we help?

We can help with all sorts of things, including:

  • Exploring your careers options (we haven’t all known we’ve wanted to be a Chemical Engineer since we were 5 years old.)
  • Looking at your experience and identifying all those skills you’ve got up your sleeve
  • Perfecting your interview technique
  • Helping you find vacancies, whether in the UK or abroad
  • Advising on working abroad, volunteering, self-employment, or further study. 

Aston Futures

And don’t forget your old best friend, Aston Futures. You can still access this service, you just need to complete the ‘Graduate Registration’ using your personal email address. Then you can view graduate opportunities to your heart’s content. 

Accessing online tools

If you haven't already noticed, our webpages contain lots of useful resources to help you with your career search. We do also have a range of online tools exclusively for Aston students and graduates which are hidden behind some locked pages. Once you graduate, your Aston student login details will no longer be active, but you can still access our tools if you need to. Simply email careers@aston.ac.uk and a member of the team will help. 

Graduate Team

You might not be in the loop with this, but we actually have our very own graduate team. They can help you to identify new opportunities and let you know when jobs come up that might tickle your fancy. Simply email employerteam@aston.ac.uk to get started. 

Drop by and say hello - we'd love to see you

Please come and see us, we’re a friendly bunch. You can find us above Main Building Reception, on the first floor of South Wing, and we’re open 9am-4:30pm, Monday to Friday, all year round.

Alternatively, call us on 0121 204 4757 or email careers@aston.ac.uk
