The Careers & Employability Service staff facilitate opportunities for employers to connect with our students.
This interaction provides an opportunity to recruit, impart knowledge, and share professional experiences.
All activity is taking place online until further notice.
You can get involved in the delivery of our core workshops or deliver a session of your own that we promote to your chosen cohort. To deliver your own Webinar simply email us the link, date and time, details of the session, and your target course/year group. Naturally, we can help advise on the timing and content. Three weeks notice is preferred to discuss the event and promote it well.
Sessions can focus on an area of the recruitment process such as assessment centres or video interview techniques, a particular area of knowledge that would be of use to students when applying for jobs, provide an insight into a specific industry or role, or aid your candidate selection process.
Various types of sessions are described below, but we are of course happy to hear your ideas.
1) Careers Fairs
Our annual events can be seen in the left hand menu, and take place in the autumn and spring.
At the moment they are taking place online.
2) Core Careers Advice Sessions
Open to students from all courses and year groups, covering general employability topics: CVs, Interviews, Assessment Centres, Personal Branding etc.
Suitable for organisations who are looking to employ or give advice to students from a wide range of courses.
These are hosted by Careers Advisers, with external guest speakers presenting individually or as part of a themed 'Meet The Professionals' panel.
For more information please contact our Senior Careers Adviser Rashida Ahmed:
3) Recruitment/Advice Sessions
We can promote your webinars, or sessions can be co-hosted with a Careers Adviser or Placement Coordinator (this does take more time to arrange though). Advertised as either an advice session or a headhunting exercise as you prefer.
We can help find the best time for your specific audience (course/year group) and then promote it to them.
After a group session you could host 1:1 mentoring, speed interviews, portfolio reviews etc.
