Careers support for new graduates

Graduates from St George’s have access to support from the careers service for two years after graduation.

We can support all areas of your career planning and career management, from planning your next steps to building and using your network, making applications and impressing at interview. We can support you both in person and online. Read our top 10 tips for new graduates and building your career in a pandemic.

If you have recently graduated, you may be thinking about next steps, looking to build your CV and thinking about applying for your first role. As St George’s alumni, you are entitled to free continued careers support for two years following graduation.

The careers team is on hand to support all areas of your career planning and career management, from exploring your options and preferences, planning your next steps and building and using your network, to making applications and impressing at interview. They can support you both in person and online, so that the current circumstances are not a barrier to you receiving support.

Career guidance appointments

The careers team offers 30-minute career guidance appointments in person or over the phone, and will cover any questions you have about your career.

As well as online careers appointments, there is also a range of online resources available to you, such as careers guides and online interview preparation, which the careers team can share with you on request. For more information on how to book an appointment, please email us at alumni@sgul.ac.uk

Careers events

We will be in touch through our newsletters and other alumni communications to let you know if there is an opportunity for our alumni to attend careers events, such as our careers week, career fairs and career panels - either as attendees or as volunteer speakers.

Messages to our new graduates 

Congratulations to all of you who have recently completed your course and become alumni of St George's.

Alumni have reached out to share well-wishes and advice as you begin your next chapter. You can read some of these messages below.

“As an Alumnus from 1992 I want to wish you every success and happiness in your future careers. If you can be anything in this world, be kind not just to others but especially to yourself. 

 
Medicine is still the richest and most varied career and I am proud to have started mine at the very merry St George’s, George’s is the finest in the land!” 

Justin Peter, Medicine alumnus 

“Congratulations and best wishes to you all and good luck in your chosen fields. St George’s has done you proud and I am sure you will all return the favour as you go forward. 

 
Well done and we’ll remember you as we remember our own time all those years ago!”  

Anne Sinnott, Nursing alumna

"Congratulations to the 2021 graduates! You have done so well to come through and achieve success in these oh so difficult times - academically and socially. It is an indicator of your resilience and I hope all your dreams are happy ones!"

Fiona Macleod, Medicine alumna

"Even though my graduation was in 1988 before most of you or even your parents were born, I remember it so well. How the time has flown by.  

Enjoy your careers, always seek guidance when needed, learn from the good and bad and lead the way for those that will follow you. There will be days that are hard beyond belief but they will be dwarfed by those that bring rewards and joy.

All the very best for the future."

Andy Morris, Medicine alumnus
