STOP PRESS (22/4/13)
Sorry to announce that we’ve had to cancel/postpone (most of) these events – the number of people who signed up didn’t make them viable.
However, as far as I know, the Placements session will still go ahead, as it’s part of a longer programme that day, specifically for the museums and arts admin MAs – check with your lecturers to confirm.
We’ll offer individual bespoke help to those who did sign up, and I’ll turn up at what would have been the start of most of the careers service sessions, to explain and offer quick “drop-in” advice if anyone doesn’t get the message about the cancellation and just turns up anyway.
We’ll work with the School who will survey their postgrads to see why there hasn’t been the interest they hoped for, and with a bit of luck, this will be a postponement, not a full cancellation.
The events, as they would have been!
The Graduate School in Arts, Languages and Cultures is running its inaugural Postgraduate Careers Week, from 22nd to 26th April.
We’ve got some great alumni returning to talk to you, practical workshops and talks from academics and careers staff and a firm emphasis on the kinds of careers which typically interest humanities postgrads.
Alumni confirmed include the Head of Fine Art at a major museum, the Artistic Director and CEO of a theatre production company, and the Chief Executive of a community-led healthy living centre – all former postgrads.
With several hundred postgrads in the School of Arts, Histories and Cultures (SALC), and some of the events limited to around 40 places, I’d strongly recommend booking in advance to be sure of your place.
You can book through CareersLink – just login using your usual university IT login details, and if you’re in the School of Arts, Histories and Cultures (SALC), you’ll see all the events listed under the tab “Careers Fairs & Events”.
