Welcome to Generation Essex

Generation Essex

If you are a current final year undergraduate, join Generation Essex.

If you graduated in July 2017, read on!

If you graduated in 2016 or earlier please refer to our support for graduates.


If you are a current student, you can log in to CareerHub using your normal Essex ID and password.

If you graduated between 2014 and 2017, CareerHub is still your Essex careers portal and is FULL of graduate vacancies and paid graduate internships. Find your dream job in a few clicks!

If you have recently graduated, head to CareerHub and click ‘graduate’ on the login page. Then select ‘Reset your Password’ and follow the instructions to access your graduate account. HINT: you’ll need your PRID and your non-Essex email address (Your PRID is your Essex ID e.g. WHEEL12345).

If you are having trouble accessing CareerHub since you graduated please visit our Accessing Essex CareerHub page.
