Welcome to my careers advice website

Providing careers advice guides as published books for a range of job sectors and applying to university

With over 30 years careers advice experience, helping young people and adults, students, graduates and postgraduates considering career and education options

Hi, my name is Janice Eglin (BA, MA, DipCG, PGCert Teaching and Learning in HE) and I have worked as a careers adviser with over 30 years’ experience. I have provided careers advice and guidance for young people and adults considering career and education options as well as for people who want a change in career or to get back into employment. The majority of my experience has been in the higher education sector giving careers advice to students, graduates and postgraduates, providing advice on undergraduate and postgraduate courses and lecturing on higher education courses. I have also worked in schools and colleges.

I gained a BA hons in Sociology, an MA in Education, a Diploma in Careers Guidance as well as a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education and a Careers Guidance Assessment qualification. I am currently a member of the Career Development Institute (CDI) and a previous member of the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services (AGCAS). After retiring, I wanted to share my careers knowledge to help people who are considering their career options or a change in career direction. I have written extensively on careers information for university students, graduates and postgraduates.  I have now produced and published a number of careers advice guides for people considering career and education options in a range of job sectors as well as a careers advice guide on applying for higher education courses available at www.amazon.co.uk .  See 'Services' page for a list of books available.
