Employability Skills Programme
The Employability Skills Programme 2019, sponsored by ProjectSet, is designed as a journey that will prepare you to make the transition from education to work, exploring all aspects of the selection and recruitment process from finding out what employers are looking for to what you can expect from your first month in graduate employment. The sessions will cover the skills that are most valued by recruiters, how you can reflect on these and how to articulate your experiences clearly when talking to employers. Sessions in 2019 will take place on Tuesday afternoons from 13:00 to 14:00 and Tuesday evenings from 18:00 to 19:00.
How does it work?
Student who attend eight of the ten sessions and complete a reflective review will receive a certificate of participation presented on Tuesday 12th November, 18:00-20:00, by our sponsor, ProjectSet.
