Support for mature students

As a mature student you may have acquired more life experiences than other students. Use them as a base upon which to develop and demonstrate all the skills and qualities you have acquired.

We are here to help and support you identify your career goals and achieve them.

You may want advice on CV writing, how to maximize your previous work history or explain your change of direction.

The graduate recruitment process is constantly changing and you may need to learn about and practice psychometric tests or assessment centre challenges.

Perhaps you would like to increase your confidence in interviews or understand how to ‘sell’ yourself in the recruitment process.

We have general information on CVs, applications etc. and a range of video resources which are only available to Lancaster students through the Knowledge Bank.

If you would like to discuss your situation with Careers staff we offer a range of options; from our drop-in service to bookable appointments and our e-Guidance service 'My Queries' which is available through TARGETconnect.

TARGETconnect is our main Careers CRM for students and graduates, giving you access to range of services. These introductionary 'How to ...' videos will help you get the most out of TARGETconnect.

Please contact us if you have any difficulties accessing these or other resources.
