Careers and Employability Service

Good advice gets you on the right path

Belfast Met’s Careers and Employability Service offers support to help you to make important decisions about your education, your training and your career development.

You may want help to identify the course that is right for you, to develop your career ideas or to progress to a job or a higher course of study.

Whatever your goal, we offer a professional, impartial and confidential careers education, information, advice and guidance service to help you to make effective career decisions to take your next step.

We provide guidance to help you to:

  • Understand and realistically assess your career options
  • Make effective career decisions
  • Understand the job/course search process
  • Prepare for selection processes
  • Succeed in reaching your goals

We can help you to get:

Access to opportunities for skills development, work experience and employment through:
  • Links to employers
  • Help in accessing placement and/or work experience opportunities
  • Volunteering opportunities

Access careers information and resources on:

  • Employers
  • Courses in further and higher education
  • Job opportunities

Remember - a career is about more than just getting a job, although getting a job is an important part in your career development.

A career is made up of a number of different stages in your working life and is described better as a pathway or a series of steps e.g. education, training, employment, further qualifications, job changes through promotion or other personal changes in your life.

Careers guidance is professional help that you can access to develop your career pathway.
