So what exactly is Aston Futures? 

Otherwise known as your new best friend, Aston Futures is an online platform run by Careers+Placements. It allows you to do all sorts of great things, including:
  • Search and apply for opportunities – whether that be internships, placements, graduate jobs, part-time work or volunteering roles. Whatever stage you’re at, you’ll be able to find something that suits your needs. (Also, some of the roles on there are exclusive to Aston Futures, which means you won’t find them anywhere else).
  • Set up tailored job alerts so you never miss out on an awesome role.
  • Book an appointment with the JobShop, Placement Coordinators or Careers Consultants to get support and advice.
  • Browse and book your spot at events including fairs, workshops, and employer drop-in sessions.

Sounds great, how do I get started?

Click on that big old picture above – the one with the cute, little mouse on it. It will whisk you away straight to Aston Futures. You’ll then need to enter in your usual student username and password – it’s that simple (if you’ve graduated from Aston within the last three years, you can still use Aston Futures but you will need to create a graduate account using your personal email address).

Once you’re in, the first thing you’ll need to do is set up a profile. You’ll just need to answer a few questions about yourself, including your preferences, then you’re good to go.

Don’t just forget all about your profile though – it’s important to keep checking it throughout the year and updating it if your preferences change.

Tip – it’s really worth spending some time tailoring your profile as much as possible. You’ll receive email alerts based on your answers, and we’d hate for you to get emails about roles you couldn’t give two hoots about.
