If you’ve just started at The University of Bath or are returning after the summer break and you’ve already found this blog, congratulations! You rock!
Brand new fresher?
If you’re going to the Freshers Fair this week, you’ll probably find yourself signing up for clubs and societies or other activities like volunteering or such crazy things as a sponsored bungee jump! All of the above are great CV fodder, as potential employers look for students who can demonstrate their initiative, have strong communication and organisation skills (e.g. the ability to juggle coursework with extracurricular activities!), have held positions of responsibility and are generally ‘well-rounded’ people. And remember, it’s never too early to be thinking about your career too.
Stop by at the Careers Service stand and say hello (we think we are a normal bunch!) and find out how we can help you. Alternatively, Like our Facebook page and check out our website.
Returning to second or final year?
So, you’re back after the long summer break! Now’s a really great time to be thinking about your career. Do you know what you want to do when you graduate? If not, you could consider booking an appointment with one of our careers advisers to discuss your options. We have a bumper TWO DAY careers fair in Week 3, where you can meet with over 150 employers!
Over the coming months, we’ll be blogging on things such as:
- Making the most of the careers fair
- Aceing interviews and assessment centres
- How to start your internship and job hunt
- Alternatives to Grad Schemes
.......and much more! So make sure you check in regularly!
