Older students might recognise this lyric from the Elvis Costello song “Oliver’s Army”; younger students might wonder who on earth is Elvis Costello?!
Here at the SOAS Careers Service we have a wealth of valuable careers information that we can point you in the direction of to help you get yourself an occupation. For example, on the SOAS Careers Moodle, we have researched 1000s of resources to create Occupational Sector pages ranging from Actuarial Work, Pensions and Insurance right through to Transport and Logistics!
The information on these pages are checked for accuracy, currency and quality by careers professionals – a good place to start your research, rather than going straight to Google. There are also sections on Job Hunting – including where to look for jobs, interview tips, sample CVs, examples of psychometric tests, Postgraduate Study and Funding, Working outside the UK, and loads, loads more. We have even uploaded presentations and videos of workshops that you may have missed.
So next time you are wondering how to become a Charity Officer, Arts Administrator or Trade Mark Attorney – it’s called careers information, and you might just be able to get yourself an occupation!
