Make a thorough inventory of your skills, your knowledge and your experience.
Read up on potential employers and look at job advertisements in your field of interest to get an idea of what is required. Conduct an 'informational interview'.
Create tailored application documents (targeting your application towards specific jobs you are applying for takes time, so make sure you start the process as early as possible).
Build your professional network to create opportunities for the future (by doing an internship, being active at LinkedIn and by participating at career fair days)
Preparing well for an interview - by thinking through both how you want to present your skills and what questions you want to ask the employer - you will get the most out of the interview.
Jobs and career paths
During your time at the University, many questions may arise about what kind of job would suit you after graduating. Our online course catalogue lists all the University’s courses and programmes. On the programme page, you can find examples of professions and career paths relevant to your courses or programme.
Reflecting on the courses you have studied and the knowledge you have acquired makes it easier to market yourself and your skills to employers
Students have the opportunity to join a Peer Support Network (PSN) in association with Malmö University.
This is an initiative to encourage career-related mental wellbeing by helping students to get in touch with other students (that is, student peers) to discuss and support one's own and student peers’ career-related challenges and mental wellbeing. As such, participation and contribution is voluntary but its success relies on “sharing is caring”.
More about the Peer Support Network
In short, the Peer Support Network is:
an initiative to prompt discussions on the meaning of self-awareness, self-confidence and ability to take ownership on career-related transition and or progression
a place wherein you and your student peers are given the chance to work on career-related challenges and support own and student peers’ career-related transition and or progression
a course with coursework
a place to discuss field or study specific details (e.g., how SPSS works or what research method to use for my specific research project)
If you are interested in the Peer Support Network, please contact Sirkka Jarlvik (firstname.lastname@example.org).
