E-guidance allows you to send one of our careers advisers a careers related question by email. You can use e-guidance for a wide range of careers queries e.g. options after your course, choosing a course, changing your postgraduate course, job search strategies, interview and application advice, or information about particular job areas.

E-guidance is the service for you if you are not able to visit the careers centre in person. It may be your first contact with us and you would like some information or advice before visiting Purple Door. You should be a current student of the University of Portsmouth or a recent graduate (we can accept e-guidance queries up to five years after graduation) or those interested in undertaking a University of Portsmouth course.

All you have to do is complete our E-guidance online form providing as much information as possible, and a careers adviser will reply within five working days.

You are guaranteed confidentiality and impartiality. We will try to answer your query as fully as we can but there are occasions when we will suggest you need to come into Purple Door.

We are not able to accept covering letters, CVs or application forms via e-guidance. In these cases it would be necessary to arrange an appointment with a careers adviser.
