Careers & Job Search Coaching

So, what are you going to do after University?

It’s a question you’ve probably heard a lot, whether you’re in your first year as a student or you’ve already graduated. Sometimes, it might seem that everyone else except you seems to know what they want. But guess what?

  • It’s normal not to know
  • It’s normal to have doubts
  • It’s normal to worry about making the right decisions

Figuring out who you are, what you want to be, and how you’re going to get there is a long and complex process. But it doesn’t have to be stressful. In fact, working out what you want from life after you graduate and successfully landing a job you love can be a hugely enjoyable, rewarding and fulfilling process.

At Graduate Goals, our highly experienced and postgraduate qualified Career Coaches can help you find your purpose and approach the job market with confidence. We offer 1-1 graduate careers advice in a confidential, impartial and private setting. Our Career Coaches have years of experience working in Universities, helping thousands of students and graduates across every type of course to land great graduate jobs, and we can now offer the same service online, via phone or Skype.

Job Search and Interview Advice

Many graduates also come to us for help in getting a student or graduate job or internship. Studying at University gives you fantastic subject knowledge, but usually little help on how to land a job with it.

There’s nothing more frustrating than applying for job after job, only to receive rejections, or worse still, hear nothing back at all. But the truth is, that there is a time-honoured formula to successfully navigating the graduate job market, and most graduates aren’t aware of it. Our experienced job experts know exactly where you should be looking and what you should be doing. We regularly help graduates secure great roles, from Top 100 Graduate employers, to smaller companies, start ups and niche employers.

We also offer detailed 1-1 graduate interview preparation and support to ensure you stand out for the right reasons at interview. We have helped students and graduates through some of the toughest and most competitive interview processes in the job market so we know what works.

What can I say? The CV Carrie worked on for me just made my day. I particularly liked the way Carrie reigned me in – hearing me out patiently, then really focusing on tailoring my CV for my audience (the UK market and HR industry), whilst bringing out softer aspects about myself that I wasn’t able to communicate clearly on paper prior to this.


HR, India

Fantastic work, I was truly impressed with the quality of the work. I have never had to do my own CV but it was tailored to a specific job perfectly.


IT Graduate, Newcastle

Carrie was brilliant doing her job. She was really useful and gave me plenty of advice. I highly recommend her.


Health and Social Care, Cambridge

I’m really impressed with the level of service. Graduate Goals has done a great job bringing my CV up to the industry standard, all in just a few of days. Great communication! I’d recommend them to anyone who is looking for a professional and quick service!



Excellent communication, fast and efficient service, top quality CV. I would highly recommend.


Sociology Graduate, Norwich

Having come from another country, I required assistance with my CV as my understanding of UK requirements and the conventions that recruiters are looking for was very limited. I was pleased with the CV and cover letter that I received and would recommend without hesitation. Thank you!


LLB, London

Extremely happy with the level of service provided, really easy to communicate, very friendly and understood exactly what I need.


Media student, Manchester

I am a mature student based in Continental Europe and was particularly interested to have my CV reviewed and worked on by UK CV specialist. Carrie completely identified with my rather technical career history and researched very well into it. I recommend to really work with Carrie and brain storm her questions for best feedback. Happy customer. Many thanks.


Catering Graduate, Germany

The CV was taken on knowing it was a lot of work. I have had good communication all the way through the process and the work is 100% amazing. I would recommend this service to anyone that needs this doing. I would do again and I will be passing on to my friends and family as well due to the excellent service.


Music Technology Graduate, Cardiff

Excellent service. A very fast response that was thoughtful and personal to my experience and job aspirations. Some very simple and easy to implement tips, but also more in-depth ones. Clearly highly knowledgable in CV writing. Would highly recommend! Thank you.



Great communication and fast delivery, the order was delivered exactly as required and job was done 100% well. I’m very happy with the service and will definitely be using again.


Politics student, Bristol

Very professional. Carrie knows her stuff and clearly justifies every change that she made with my CV. Thanks a lot and I hope to land a job soon with my new CV.


Marketing MSc, Nottingham

Graduate Goals carried out their work exceptionally well and in good time. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for another pair of eyes to check their CV.


Business student, London

I have just had an offer from my first choice Law firm! Thank you so much for all of your advice and support. It’s made such a difference!


LLM, Liverpool

Excellent from start to finish. Cannot imagine anyone better! 10 out of 10
