Welcome Part 2!
I have already said welcome to international students who were here for Orientation Week. It was good to see many of you at our session in the Student Union Auditorium and get chance to talk to you at the following ‘Open Day’ at the Careers Service. Congratulations to Chukwuemeka Ibekwe a postgraduate student in Information Studies who won the prize draw.
I would now like to say welcome to all the rest of the international students who have arrived this week or will be arriving this weekend.
We often say that career planning and job seeking begins on Day 1 of your time at University, and that is even more important for those who you are only here for a year on a postgraduate course. So come and see us at 388 Glossop Road and pick up a copy of some of our very useful leaflets, booklets and directories such as:-
•‘Where to look’ booklet - advice on getting part-time jobs and work experience
•‘Maximise’ leaflet – gives details of the talks and workshops we are running this semester specifically for international students
•Employer directories – gives details of the graduate recruiters (we have ‘The Times Top 100’, ‘The Guardian UK 300’ and the ‘Target Jobs GET Directory’ available so far)
You can also meet our staff and find out about all the services we offer to students.
Have a look on our website www.shef.ac.uk/careers if you aren’t sure where we are -388 Glossop Road-(and you’ll also see all the useful information that there is on there too!)
