Career Services' top tips for job hunters

  1. Make a thorough inventory of your skills, your knowledge and your experience.
  2. 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'.
  3. 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).
  4. 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)
  5. 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 studies, questions may arise about what jobs might suit you after your studies. On the programme or course page, you can find examples of possible professions and career paths for your specific programme or course.

By reflecting on the courses you have taken and the knowledge you have acquired, you can more easily market yourself and your skills.

Peer Support Network

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

...and not:

  • 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)
