Language at Work is an initiative designed to help students recognise and develop their innate and learned language and communication skills. Our international student body speaks a wide range of languages and that linguistic diversity is key to their employability. Moreover, students in AEL, and in Humanities more generally, tend to have very highly-developed communication skills, but often fail to recognise this or know how to translate these skills to career development. Language at Work offers a platform to celebrate and enhance those skills.

This event will bring together anyone who is interested in a career using language skills. It will gather language graduates, students and experts from Careers in order to discuss employment prospects and the evolution of the sector in the post-Brexit era. The vast array of career options for graduates with language skills is not always readily visible. This workshop will present and discuss the different professional paths graduates can follow with a Q&A session with experts from the Careers Service and industry.
