What’s happening in April?
In April we will be running 3 workshops/events for International Students.
Firstly – Workshop on Interview Skills on the 15th April at 1.30-5.00pm.
This is a repeat of the one we ran last week. The students who attended seemed to get a lot out of it, so if you missed that one, here’s another chance. It is run jointly by the Careers Service and the English Language Teaching Centre. Booking for this opens on Tuesday 6th April and you book by calling in to the Careers Service with a £10 deposit which you will get back at the session.
Secondly –National Insurance Number Registration Day on Monday 19th April 10.00am-3.00pm
We have invited ‘Job Centre Plus’ staff to come to the University to help students register for a national insurance (NI) number. This is by appointment only and each appointment will last approximately half an hour. Bookings open on Wednesday 7th April and to make a booking for this, please visit the Jobshop in the Students' Union. (Jobshop is open Mon-Fri 10am-3pm (Tues from 11am) and during vacations Mon-Fri 1-3pm.)
Thirdly – CV Workshop
We are running the last one this year of our CV & Applications Workshops for undergraduates and taught post graduates. It is also run jointly by the Careers Service and the English Language Teaching Centre. This workshop is in 2 parts.
Part 1 is on Thursday 22nd April 2.15-5.00pm and it covers - What makes a good CV, Covering Letter and Application including how to tailor your CV/Application to different employers, and working with others in the group to review CVs, (including your own).
Part 2 is on the afternoon of Thursday 29th April and you have individual appointments with Advisers and Tutors from the Careers Service and E.L.T.C. to review your own CV and Covering letter (in regard to content, structure, spelling, grammar). You have to be able to attend both parts.
