What is the CLOCK your skills workshop?
Across the event, you’ll work on a creative project in a small team. CLOCK’s expert employers will give you personal feedback, and support you to build your digital portfolio of skills and achievements. As well as the knowledge and skills you have gained in your degree, you’ll be encouraged to draw on your hobbies and voluntary experience as well as any work experience you already have.
Regardless of your professional or personal aspirations, CLOCK@City will boost your confidence and raise awareness of how recruiters choose between candidates. You’ll identify the full range of your talents and how you can begin to achieve your ambitions after your degree.
What will I be doing?
- Problem solving in a group on a current social issue – teamwork = the key graduate interview/assessment topic
- Getting personal feedback – from fellow students and employer experts
- Knowing what to emphasise on your CV and in applications – how your experience and skills feed into your applications
- Gaining new confidence – about your strengths and skills, your ambitions, and how to fulfil them
- Qualifications – continuing to complete an optional vocational qualification in work-based learning
Places on this course are limited, and priority will be given to 2019 graduate applicants who have not previously completed one of City’s career-related programmes (including Professional Mentoring, Industry Placement Years, an assessed placement module or a Micro-Placement), then by order of application – so sign-up now! You will be notified of acceptance by 30 May.
Fun and immediately useful – Last year’s CLOCK graduates said:
CLOCK was fun and challenging, helping me to focus on both consolidating my own perceptions and encouraging new ones.
Teamwork is the core of work – it’s all about making it happen.
I believe the Clock Your Skills workshop was very eye opening in terms of showing me the skills that are required to be successful. I was able to learn what I had to improve on as well as learn about the skills I thought I didn’t have but used well. It unveiled what I was capable of, and was very empowering.
I have quite a lot of varied experiences but I don’t know where or how they might be applied.
I’m not sure about my career options. I feel I first need to understand my personal toolbox
