Through a range of careers events held throughout the year, we provide excellent support helping our current students explore potential career options and providing the opportunity to engage with graduate employers and Lancaster alumni
In addition to the main University Careers Fair, which include the main Fairs (attracting Times Top 100 employers), the Teaching Fair, Law Fair (open to all subject areas) and an Opportunities Fair (attracting charities, public and third sector organisations), we hold our own LEC Careers Fair, putting students in direct contact with representatives from sectors related to our degrees.
In late 2016, this event will merge with other departments from the Faculty of Science and Technology, resulting in a larger event with the opportunity to speak to more and a wider range of businesses and organisations.
LEC Alumni Panel Events
Our degree specific panel events allow students to hear careers stories and advice from a range of speakers. Following the speeches, the panel is open to questions and answers from students and students are welcome to chat with panellists for more personal advice over refreshments at the end of the event.
All of our students receive a regular careers bulletin, highlighting upcoming events hosted within the department and by the University, as well as information about opportunities for employment and further study.
Our Beyond LEC blog is an informal way for current students and alumni to share their experiences of internships, careers events and graduate employment.
If you would like to contribute to the blog please email the LEC Careers Team.
