The Careers and Graduate Futures Service aims to assist Heriot-Watt University students and graduates to make informed career choices by providing a professional, high quality careers guidance and information service for students and recent graduates of Heriot-Watt. We work closely with employers and academic Schools to support students by developing the skills they need to maximise their employability

The Careers and Graduate Futures Service is here to support your career planning in a number of ways including:

  • looking for graduate jobs, internships, placements and part-time work on campus
  • attending careers fairs, networking sessions and other events
  • writing CVs and drafting job applications
  • preparing for interviews and psychometric tests
  • finding volunteering opportunities
  • getting a mentor
  • choosing a career path

We do this by offering opportunities to develop skills and gain experiences which will enable you to manage your future career development and achieve your goals. 

Information on job vacancies, careers and skills development workshops, and careers resources can all be accessed on our GRADfutures careers platform. Current students and alumni who studied at one of our campuses, can also book 1:1 appointments with one of our Careers Consultants via GRADfutures.
