We have received the following message from the British Council-
The British Council, operating in China as the Cultural and Education Section of the British Embassy, will run a series of career development workshops in the UK from the 26 October to 03 November 2013. Based on last year’s success, the British Council China will hold four workshop sessions this year, including mini job fairs in Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol and London. These workshops will give Chinese students further insight into the career opportunities available to them and professional advice on job hunting and interview skills.
This year we are working in partnership with Zhaopin.com to invite well known businesses to take part in our event. Chinese students will be able to explore their interests and skills to further help them explore the career development process. Participants will also have the chance to interact with business representatives who will be able to offer career development advice and information on their own job opportunities.
The sessions are open to all Chinese students studying in the UK. However, due to site restrictions and safety concerns, students wishing to take part should register. Spaces are limited and will be offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Successful registrants will receive email confirmation from us following the close of registration.
