Upcoming employer events

19 November 2012

Maximising your employment prospects should be a priority whether you're a first year or final year student - and we have the resources to help you do so.

Competition is tough in the current jobs market and large organisations are inundated with applications, but you can stay ahead of the competition by making the most of what's on offer.

Sign up to Prospects Net - our online vacancies and events database - to keep up to date with what's going on.

This academic year, the Career Development Centre has lined up a series of presentations with major employers such as KPMG, CIMA, the Civil Service, the NHS, and TfL.

If you want help with applications and assessment centres, you can also sign up for our regular employer skills sessions on campus, which will help you find out first-hand exactly what employers are looking for.

Here are some of the events that have been organised for you this year – the full list can be found on Prospects Net, where you'll be able to sign up for these events, as well as search our jobs board.

Note that although it's not compulsory to sign up via Prospects Net, by doing so, you'll be able to see all the latest events and any changes to existing events.
