New programme makes LJMU students CareerSmart

LJMU's new career programme prepares students for the working world

Competition for professional jobs is tough but LJMU has introduced a new employment programme to help students stand out. We are confident that this enhanced career development and employability programme will enable students to compete against the best candidates, and win.

All students in their first year of study at LJMU will have the opportunity to engage with the programme as an integral part of a core module of study. Once you have completed this, a wide range of other career-related provision and services will be available to support your development throughout your studies.

The new CareerSmart Explore e-learning tool will introduce you to the steps involved in making informed choices about your career. It will enable you to consider your strengths and development areas, career motivators, the options available to you and what to do to achieve your career goals.

The LJMU International Study Centre runs the CareerAhead programme which supports career development and prepares international students for the working world. It provides a solid foundation to the University’s CareerSmart programme by helping you gain valuable skills and stand out from the crowd.
