The University of the Highland and Islands has created a series of podcasts to help students and graduates navigate their employment options.

In each 30-minute episode various professionals from across the region will talk about their own careers and share varying perspectives on the world of work.


The Future Me series also features a range of interviews with staff and graduates who share their own stories, experience and advice.

Nicola Smith from UHI's careers and employability centre said: "The theme running though this podcast series is ‘look up, look forward and be in the know'.

"This new resource gives us an opportunity to communicate with students in a different way.

"It provides insights into a range of career journeys, shared by real voices, in an accessible format.

"We believe that there will be something of interest to everyone no matter what subject or level they are studying at.

"It will encourage students and graduates to be open to exploring the possibilities and to consider what careers exist across our region and beyond."

Florence Jansen is the Students' Association President at UHI.

She said: "The service provided by the careers and employability centre is a major component of the student experience at the university.

"It helps so many students develop the skills needed to thrive in this uncertain time, giving them confidence to succeed in their chosen careers.

"We're interested to see how the new podcast adds to the service provided.

"We hope it motivates our students to stay connected, ambitious and excited about their futures."

The series is available now from the careers and employability centre at www.uhi.ac.uk
