The Careers Service is delighted to present its Lent Term programme 2021. This is looking to be a challenging term, but we are here to help you with a diverse range of virtual fairs, events, and skills sessions should you need them
You can make the most of the Careers Service this term by:
- Completing your Handshake Profile and Career Interests with as much detail as you can. This will enable our careers advisers to send you tailored updates and event notifications.
- Exploring the Career Centre to access our resources and appointments.
- Below is a flavour of what we’ve got coming up. Find our full range of fairs, sessions and panels via the Events section.
Don’t miss our careers fairs this term – they only take place once each academic year. They are all being run virtually, and you can discover more and register via Handshake.
