Welcome from Mick Burns and Alison McGeechan, Careers Advisers.

Some of the reasons why you are important in career planning!

First up, can you please complete the following survey

Tonight we are going to show some websites that you can use to help students with some aspects of their career planning.  We do not have enough time to show you all of them, so we have attached a series of short videos that you can use to help you in the future.  As you can see the blog allows you look at information, see what’s happening, view various careers presentations and ask questions.  You can always reach us by email or by phone at our office in Musselburgh, 0131 665 3120.
