Generation Essex for final year students

We understand that if you are graduating this year, life just got very uncertain. If your plans have had to change, or you're not sure what to do next, don't panic, Generation Essex is here to help you.

How Generation Essex can help you

Final Year, Future Focused

Final Year, Future Focused is a series to help you respond to the changes that the Coronavirus crisis has created. We are running a different webinar each week that you can book via CareerHub and we'll save all of the content and additional resources on Moodle so you can always refer back or build on your knowledge.

Make a plan

Take advantage of the great workshops, events and online resources available. From improving your CV to preparing for postgraduate study, we’ve got it all covered. Book via CareerHub and browse resources on CareerHub+.

Our 1:1 appointments are still available via Zoom. If you would like careers advice or support with an application or interview visit CareerHub appointments.

Careers Coaching

Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus crisis some of our Generation Essex support for graduates might be a bit different to when you signed up. Our Coaches and careers experts will do their best to contact you during your last term at Essex or after your official last day with us but this may take longer than we had hoped. If you need us before we get to you, don't forget you’re part of the Essex family and you have access to careers support for life, you can book an appointment, or email

Considering a Masters?

Look no further than your very own Careers Services team who can help you find the perfect course here at Essex (you get a discount) We’ll even guide you through your application and help you find information on funding. Attend a webinar, or book an appointment to understand your choices.

Consider starting your own business

If you’re a budding entrepreneur, we are here to support your start-up dream. Essex Startups can help you think about the practicalities in light of the current situation. Search for Essex Startups appointments on CareerHub or email and begin the journey to being your own boss.
