What have you done in addition to your degree to enhance your employability and what do you feel you’ve gained from this?
I have been a very active member of the QUB Players society through being on the committee and directing shows. From this I have gained a greater ability to work students from other degree areas; develop my skills in contacting outside organisations and management.
I have taken advantage of the facilities offered by the Careers service at QUB by taking part in their Career Connections Programme in June 2014 as well as the drop-in sessions. These have introduced me to the numerous opportunities graduates from the School of Creative Arts have.
Making use of Careers, Employability and Skills at Queen’s
The Career Connections Programme as well as the Career Guidance Appointments helped me greatly as they enabled me to realise the numerous opportunities available for Arts graduates.
Any advice for other Queen's students?
Make a conscious effort to take advantage of the career facilities offered at QUB and let them enable you to find the right pathway.
