Hope you’ve been keeping up with all the careers information events that have been running this semester – and Wednesday 13th (tomorrow, as I write this) is another big day.
As usual, the second semester focuses more on non-corporate careers or those “careers with a difference” as we’ve termed them – either a different way of working, such as self-employment, or those sectors where “graduate recruitment schemes” are rare. In other words, careers where you normally have to find your own way – which suits a lot of postgraduates.
We’ve got a glut of events tomorrow, appealing to different types of people. We’d love you to register in advance, but if you haven’t – just come along (you’re unlikely to get turned away).
- Careers in the Environmental Sector – our big annual information event, where environmental professionals “tell it like it is” and give you the chance to network with them. Likely to include public sector, private sector, consultancy, legal/regulatory, science, conservation professionals (in other words, they’ve said they’re coming but you never know who’s going to show up on the day!)
1.00pm – 5.00pm
Lecture Theatre A (3rd floor), University Place
- Freelancing – stay in control of your career by working for yourself – informal presentation and round table discussion with experienced freelance professional, Martin Ross
Room 5.004, Fifth Floor, Crawford House (the Careers Service building, opposite the Aquatics Centre entrance)
- Getting started in HR – one of those ever-popular but hard to get into careers, this will get you started
Crawford House (the Careers Service building, opposite the Aquatics Centre entrance)
More details in the links – don’t miss out if you’ve got any ambitions in these fields. Your next chance to attend these will probably this time next year.
