Careers and employability
Whether you are a current student, or are reconnecting with us as alumni of DMU, we offer a range of support services to help you in the next step of your employability journey.
If you know what you're looking for from one of our projects, please use the menu to select your choice. However, if you are looking for help but don’t know where to start then our careers tool below could help you. This planning tool can be used time and again to help you at any point of your journey.
Alternatively, you can also book a face-to-face appointment or contact us on MyGateway or social media.
We offer a range of careers resources and opportunities so you can start planning your future. Find out how some of our current students have increased their employability by watching the video below.
