Boost your CV and develop your skills alongside your studies with a part-time job or work experience.

Step 1: Planning

Finding your focus is important when starting your job search. What type of job do you want?

How many hours do you want to work?

What companies are in your local area?

The answers to these questions should help you to narrow down a list of target areas and sectors that you want to apply to.

Step 2: Find opportunities

We advertise hundreds of paid part-time vacancies throughout the year.

To start applying for these opportunities log-in to My Career Hub using your Manchester Met Student ID number and password.

Jobs4Students offers students paid, temporary on-campus job opportunities throughout the University.

Students can join the mailing list to receive email alerts about upcoming roles.

Remember, not every job vacancy is advertised and these hidden vacancies are often filled by people who have taken the initiative and applied directly to the company they want to work for.

Read our Finding Work guide for advice on how to find and secure these hidden opportunities.

Step 3: Start Applying

We know that job seeking can be time-consuming, so it is important to ensure your applications are effective.

We support students and graduates through each stage of the application process.

Check the Careers Guides we have available to help you with your job search, applications, interviews etc.
