Welcome to the first edition of the Employability Service blog. We're excited to bring you features written by the team, as well as input from students and employers.
Our blog will give us an opportunity to keep you up to speed with tips on how you can stand out from the crowd through making the most of the self-development opportunities we have on offer for you. We want to help with your career planning and to develop your employability skills, whether you have just started your study or are leaving us soon.
Once again we are really pleased to offer a whole host of events on campus this year, including Careers Fairs, our brand new Be Your Best workshop series, employer events and webinars. Just sign up on our events page.
The Career Centre also has a new look with fantastic new features including CV360 and Career Pulse – we hope you like it!
Our Employability & Careers Advisers are available during drop-in sessions for face to face help on job and further study search. You can also book an appointment with your campus careers adviser if you would like to explore your career options and next steps.
Don’t forget the Jobs search engine on our portal which also includes a link to the Employment Bureau, a great place to look for part-time work on campus – earn some cash while you learn and build up your skills and experience at the same time. Our Placement Team is also available to help guide you through the process of finding work and applying, for those of you registered on a placement year or considering this as an option.
Remember, this blog is for you – ARU students. Do share your thoughts with us and if you have something interesting or useful information regarding employability and careers that you can share with your peers, contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good luck for the new academic year and we look forward to seeing you soon!
Amanda Crouch, Head of Employability & Careers
