Great that the weather is finally getting better isn’t it? It’s been a long winter!!
3 things to talk about in this blog:-
Firstly – we are running the first of a brand new workshop specifically for International Students.
It is run jointly by the Careers Service and the English Language Teaching Centre. It is on the topic of Interviews – so if you have got an interview coming up or are likely to have one- then this is the event for you. It is on Thursday 25th March 1.45pm-5.00pm. You need to book by calling in to the Careers Service with a £10 deposit which you will get back at the session. There are limited places so call in soon.

Secondly – if you are a European Citizen you may be interested to know that on the 16th of March, the European Personnel Selection Office will launch its procedure to select graduates to work in the EU Institutions. They have opportunities in the fields of European Public Administration, Law, Audit, Economics, and Information and Communication Technology.
They say that “A career in the EU Institutions offers a lifetime of different jobs doing interesting and challenging work that makes a real difference for Europe, in an environment where staff are encouraged to learn new skills and languages, and have opportunities to work and travel abroad”.

Registration closes on the 15th of April.
Thirdly – are you working part-time?
Are you an outstanding student employee? If your employer agrees and you found your job through our vacancy service/JobShop, then ask your employer to nominate you for a SEOTY (Student Employer of the Year) Award. There is a category for International Student Employee of the Year.
Being an institutional, regional or even a national winner would be a fantastic addition to your CV and impress graduate employers a great deal. You could also win £100 or £200 and a framed certificate or trophy.
The closing date is 26th March.
