Millions of Worldwide Opportunities. Sorted!!

Posted on

The Careers and Employability Service are delighted to offer access to GoinGlobal software, offering students at UWS the chance to explore career and employment resources internationally.  The system has more than 10,000 pages of constantly-updated content on topics such as:  job search sources, work permit/visa regulations, CV writing guidelines and examples, employment trends, salary ranges, networking groups, cultural/interviewing advice… and much more!


There are live vacancies, placements and internships advertised worldwide, and of course you can continue to access careers advice on campus to get tailored help or advice with your applications. There are also city and country guides giving detailed information from the cost of living and travel, to vacancy sources and local etiquette.  To use the system simply follow the link below, and create a personal account (this will need to be done when logged in on campus, but afterwards you will be able to access GoinGlobal online anywhere!)
