WBS 2nd year students: find out about work placement opportunities

2 October 2013

Join our series of workshops and employer presentations to find out more about how a paid placement could help you to boost your CV. The first workshop of the series will take place today (Wednesday 2 October, 3.30-4.30pm) at the Hogg Lecture Theatre.

Westminster Business School is running a series of weekly placement series workshops and employer presentations throughout this semester to help you with CVs, letters and application forms as well as interview advice. These workshops will also give you the chance to meet employers offering placements, who will be willing to share their industry expertise with you.

A one-year paid placement year could help you to:

  • develop real business skills and competencies
  • gain a 15 credit level 6 module
  • experience real-life work situations
  • increase your graduate employability

The full schedule of workshops is available on Blackboard and the first workshop of the series will take place today (Wednesday 2 October, 3.30-4.30pm) at the Hogg Lecture Theatre. During this event you will be introduced to the placement year, receive a seekers handbook and find out more about what we will do to help you throughout your second year.

If you would like to receive emails and reminders about workshops and placement vacancies, please select the Undergraduate Placement Year Westminster Business School option on Blackboard and register for a placement.

Further information about the workshops is also available on our blog and Facebook page.
