Hala Jawad is a Brighton’s Titan. You could be too.
With our Brighton’s Titans campaign, we are looking to highlight the achievements of just a few of our notable alumni.
Coming from all kinds of backgrounds and a wide range of subject areas, our Titans have one thing in common: they have all made the most of their time at Brighton and used the university as a springboard to launch them on remarkable careers.
“Brighton University provides a warm and friendly atmosphere where you feel supported from day one,” she says. And this atmosphere remains even after graduation. “As an alumnus now, I still feel supported and I still visit the university, and sit in the ref enjoying my favourite coffee where I meet my old tutors.”
One of the things that Hala feels really helped launch her on her career path was the placement she did as part of her studies.
“While I was studying at the University of Brighton, we had summer placements to gain experience and also in the final year we had extensive support when applying for pharmacy preregistration positions which included information about all opportunities around us. The university played a vital role in helping my fellow students and me to get our first employment positions.”
The Careers Service is keenly aware of the importance of work experience for all students, be it through placements, internships, part time positions or volunteer work. All of this can give you skills, experience and contacts that can set you on the road towards becoming a Titan in your own field.
No matter what your course of study, the Careers Service is here to help you gain experience in your chosen career and increase your chances of employment after graduation.
It’s never too early to get started in thinking about your career. If you want to be part of the next crop of Brighton’s Titans, your first step should be contacting the Careers Service on your campus, and sitting down with an adviser to discuss where you are now, and where you want to be.
