Social Sciences skills and careers
OU qualifications are recognised and valued by many professional organisations and employers. Having relevant experience can be vital in gaining a competitive edge in the graduate employment market.
There are a number of ways you can find potential employers. As an OU student you can
- Read employers' profiles and view vacancies on OpportunityHub.
- Find further careers information tailored to your qualification at your Study Home site under the Success tab.
- Find tips and advice on job seeking in our Jobs and work experience section.
Combining work and study shows that OU students are ambitious and have a strong work ethic. They are evidently keen to develop themselves and are managing to do this while juggling a busy work or home life, which is no mean feat. The competencies which OU students therefore develop during their degree become invaluable to us.The Graduate Recruitment Manager for Unilever
