Undergraduate support organisations

Many universities have their own Careers Service (sometimes known as the employability or enterprise centre) to assist students to find work after graduation. They have careers information and run workshops where employers provide insights into their profession. In addition, they may host a jobs or postgraduate fair where graduate employers and admissions tutors attend to recruit students. These types of events are also run at a national level in many countries. Careers advisers can also help students to write and improve their CV or resumé or to fill out complex application forms. I would suggest that you seek out your careers service as a first point of call but the following websites will also give you some additional help at the general level and for particular subject disciplines:

Country profiles
Contains information about job vacancies, visa information and country culture.

European mobility and CVs
A network of resource centres across Europe
National Association of Colleges and Employers, NACE (USA)

Official graduate careers website including information on jobs in the UK and overseas, careers advice and postgraduate study
