Career Essentials Group Work Sessions Launching This Autumn
By Skye A Aitken, on 24 September 2019
We are delighted to let you know that this Autumn UCL Careers are launching Career Essentials Group Work, a new series of lunchtime small group sessions. These sessions will give you the opportunity to work with other students on your applications, learn from each other’s experiences, share ideas and receive advice from the trained facilitator. Our new sessions are a sub-branch of our long-running and popular Career Essentials programme, which covers a wide range of career topics. With a maximum of 6 participants at each session, our new group work programme is designed to help you take practical steps to developing your own applications in a supportive environment.
Throughout the Autumn we will be running a fortnightly CV group work session from 13:00 to 13:50 at UCL Careers. In this session, you will gain feedback and tips on how to present your CV. You will also learn how to tailor your CV for the particular role you are interested in applying for and make an impactful first impression with recruiters.
The CV sessions will take place on the following dates:
- Thursday 3rd October
- Thursday 17th October
- Thursday 31st October
- Thursday 14th November
- Thursday 28th November
- Thursday 12th December
Please click on the above dates to access myUCLCareers for more details about the CV sessions, the required preparation work and to book your place. Bookings will open two weeks in advance of the sessions.
- Places are limited to 6 participants at each session and therefore booking is essential. Only book if you are able to attend.
- To take part in the sessions you must complete the short preparation tasks and be willing to share and discuss your work with other participants.
- The CV session will focus upon CVs for non-academic purposes, such as job and internship applications.
In the Spring our Career Essentials Group Work programme will be expanded with further practical sessions on making speculative applications and using STAR to showcase strengths and skills on application forms. More details to follow soon.
Remember that you can also access support for UCL Careers by booking in for a 1:1 application advice appointment with us.
