Working outside the UK
If you're considering a career abroad or moving back to your home country, you'll need to research the overseas job market just as you would in the UK.
In particular, you'll need to know about the general timescale for job applications, vacancy sources, the methods of applying for jobs, and the CV, job application and interview formats.
GradlinkUK offers advice about the graduate job markets in Africa, The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries, Bangladesh, Canada, China and India.
Connect with alumni abroad
Alumni living abroad might be a useful source of information and advice on how to market your international education and compete in an overseas job market.
If you're an international graduate and thinking about to returning to your home country, alumni there sometimes run re-orientation seminars for you and organise events that allow you to network with other graduates.
Our Alumni office has contact details for different networks of University alumni around the world. Social media platforms can also be a great way of developing alumni contacts.
