Make an appointment

Student in a meeting with a Careers AdviserWhether you are an undergraduate, postgraduate or you’ve graduated within the last two years, we are here to help.

All of our appointments are impartial, confidential and focussed on your individual needs – see below for details and book via Glasgow Careers.

Interviews are held in Interview Pods on Level 2 of the Fraser Building.

If you are an online learner, based overseas or unable to come to campus, then we are able to offer Short Careers Interviews via Skype. If you want to use this option, you must request this, and give us your Skype Name, in the “Reason for Appointment” section when making your booking.

Glasgow International College and Centre for Open Studies Students

We are unable to offer appointments to you. GIC Students, please contact your Student Services. Students from the Centre for Open Studies should contact your Guidance Adviser.

Demand for appointments is very high. If you can no longer attend your appointment, you must cancel online immediately to enable another student to take your place. Failure to cancel will require your future appointments to be made ‘in person’ rather than online.

  • Due to the fact that these interviews are only 15 minutes long, we cannot offer CV & Application Checking via Skype.
  • We cannot provide a spell checking or proof reading service, but we will help you to make your CV or Application more effective at demonstrating your suitability for a job. For help to ensure your spelling, punctuation and grammar are of a high standard, you may want to access a proof reading service.
