It’s National Careers Week!

March 4 – 8 is National Careers Week. Employment experts from outside of the university, along with your own Careers and Employability team have organised a week of remote and in-person webinars, talks, and workshops to help boost your employability, no matter what stage of study you are at.

These sessions genuinely can make the difference between getting the job or not, and standing out amongst other applicants. As such, we encourage all students, if you are available, to attend at least one session during the week. Information on sessions, who is delivering them, and how they will help you below.
