Preparing for an appointment
To get the most out of your appointment we recommend the following:
Bring any supporting documentation e.g a CV , cover letter, application form or some notes about your thoughts and ideas.
Make good use of the many online resources available via the LSE Careers website.
Attend career seminars on CVs and application forms in order to maximise your time with a Careers Consultant.
A great starting point for any consultation is to think about what is most pressing and to do some background research.
Our events and appointments are oversubscribed and therefore it is important you always cancel your booking online as soon as you know you are unable to attend, so that another student is able to book.
If you fail to attend a total of 4 appointments/events during a two week period, your online booking privileges will be revoked for 2 weeks. During this period, if you want to book an appointment you must visit LSE Careers in person to do so.
Please note: you will be marked as absent if you are more than 10 minutes late for an event.
