Free Graduate Skills Masterclasses – plus the chance to land yourself a job!
Are you looking for a graduate job? Perhaps you have already graduated, and want to develop yourself professionally.
A recent survey of employers (ISE 2018) found that in the UK, the biggest skill shortfalls relate to commercial awareness, negotiating and resilience.
The Careers Service is offering a series of three free Graduate Skills Masterclasses, to help you increase your impact and give you an edge in the competitive job market. A certificate of attendance will be provided for each masterclass.
We’re also working with small to medium enterprises offering job opportunities for graduates from the summer of 2019. Attending these sessions will allow you to hear about employers offering jobs.
Here’s some more details on the Graduate Skills Masterclasses:
