Work while studying

The importance of work experience during university

You will probably engage in a variety of different types of work during your time at university. This experience is valued by employers as the majority prefer prospective employees with work experience as well as a degree.

Every experience of work you have is preparing you to stand out from the crowd and will build up contacts, which could lead to a professional job upon graduation.

There is competition for most part-time roles, and you should make sure you put together a good CV or application. Stop into the Solent Futures Centre (RM001) to get one to one advice from a member of our team.
