The Student View
" Through UCL Careers, I established essential basic knowledge and skills from which I could proactively explore new commercial opportunities.
"Through UCL Careers, I established essential basic knowledge and skills from which I could proactively explore new commercial opportunities. The numerous careers fairs and employer presentations hosted by UCL Careers allowed me not only to appreciate the diverse array of industries that were open to me, but also to become comfortable in approaching and networking with employers.
By taking part in their Global Citizenship Employability Programme, I received a crash-course on almost everything I needed to know about applying for jobs, ranging from writing CVs and cover letters to practising mock interviews and assessment centres. I was also involved in the Focus on Management course, where I gained valuable experience working within large teams to tackle a variety of case studies under pressure. These challenges moulded my interpersonal skill set to be fit for all aspects of my life to this day.
Once I graduate from UCL, I will begin a career at a healthcare consultancy - a perfect midway between my academic background and my commercial interests!
This offer would not have been possible today without the initial helping hand from UCL Careers."
