Prepare today, for tomorrow's job market!
During this 4-day programme in the Graduate School, you will have the opportunity to build on your employability skills. The programme will cover everything you need to consider when applying for jobs, from your CV, a strategy for competency based questions, right through to being interviewed virtually. You’ll develop your online presence through LinkedIn as its popularity as a recruitment tool for employers continues to grow.
You can also complete the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) questionnaire, which is used to determine your differing strengths. Being aware of your personal preferences is one step towards understanding yourself better and improving your relationships with others.
Finally, you can also take part in a group exercise to practise your communication and decision-making skills.
