Want to develop your professional skills?

The University of Essex is committed to the continued professional and skills development of our graduates.

That’s why the Employability and Careers and Alumni teams run low cost or free career development workshops to make sure you get the most out of the skills you gained here at Essex. For skills development events and workshops, keep your eye on CareerHub.

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

Make sure your details are up to date on the Alumni portal. Keep track of Alumni professional development and networking events. You can attend these for life as part of your Essex Alumni membership.

Look out for your monthly Alumni newsletter, this will keep you in touch with every single offer we launch for Essex grads.
