Talks, workshops and more.
20th of FEBRUARY – 23rd of FEBRUARY 2017
The Employability Week in February 2017 has three days of activities, workshops and sessions for students at all levels of study. From Career Planning to Study Skills to Studying Abroad, there’s something for all year groups and degree subjects. The week offers students with the opportunity to meet industry professionals, and to devote some time and thought to future career plans. Students can consider whether their next step is postgraduate study, or if they believe that a freelance career is for them asking professionals in a one-to-one clinic. Students can even learn tips to get noticed in job applications for the summer.
