India Career Ready Programme

The India Career Ready Programme combines a bespoke online learning programme and live workshops to give Indian students at Exeter tailored guidance with their career planning, whether they want to work in the UK or back in India after graduation. This programme, led by our Employability & Placement Consultants, focuses on helping students understand the differences between the graduate recruitment markets in both India and the UK and what students need to do to succeed in either environment. India Career Ready was created in the Business school but is available to all students across the university.

Indian students often need some extra help with their career planning because:

  • The majority of Indian students want to work in the UK after their studies
  • There are some major differences between finding and applying for jobs in the UK and in India
  • Indian employers and UK employers want very different things
  • Indian students will need a working visa to stay in the UK
  • UK CVs and cover letters are different from Indian resumes

Are you a student from the UK or another country who wants to work in India?

As India Career Ready contains helpful information about the Indian graduate labour market, application and selection processes used in India and information about how to conduct an Indian job search from the UK, it will also be of interest to any other students who wish to work in India during or after their studies.

India Career Ready also offers a range of live bookable employability workshops, which supplement the online course:

  • Finding Graduate Opportunities in the UK (and India)
  • UK CVs and Cover Letters
  • Finding Internships and other Work Experience in the UK
  • Communicating across Cultures
  • How I got hired in the UK (Alumni Panel)
