October - Second Year/Third (Penultimate) Year

Emma Lennox
Careers Consultant

Welcome back to Queen’s University and the School of Arts, English and Languages.  Can you believe October is almost upon us already?

#ACTober Action One -
seeking a career in the public, charity and NGO sectors?

We have the employer panel for you!  11th November 2020 1pm, this online session will help you understand:


  • The different roles available with your degree.
  • The public sector market.
  • How organisations recruit graduates.


Register for the event online at WebinarJam.

#ACTober Action Two –
Thinking of going abroad?

Attend the Go Global Fair


If you’re thinking of spending time studying or working abroad next year you will have to plan it this year.  As someone who spent part of their second year at Queen’s studying abroad it’s worth the effort!

#ACTober Action Three –
Interested in a placement for this year or seeing who is hiring for next year?

Get registered for the Graduate Recruitment and Placement Fair

Granted it looks very different this year and will offer significantly less free stationery and food.  But, it offers you the chance to get your CV in front of an employer and book a time to chat to them.  Don’t get put off by the big names, many employers are recruiting from a variety of disciplines and are offering real diversity in the roles available.  But you need to register in advance!  Sign up on Graduateland and create your profile so you’re good to go.
