Careers Resources

I used the books from the careers library on how to be successful in cognitive and psychometric tests and it was really helpful because the way it was done in those books was exactly the same as it was in the interview. Being able to practise these made the interview process easier for me.

Careers books are available in the Hartley Library, the Winchester School of Art Library, the National Oceanographic Library and the Health Services Library at Southampton General Hospital. The books cover many topics, including application and interview advice, career planning tips, working abroad, starting your own business and sector specific information.

In addition to this there are many employer brochures available online which can be accessed by clicking on the boxes below. We also have over 100 e-books which can be accessed online; to browse our range of e-books, please visit our dedicated e-books webpage.
