All recruiters look for evidence of a range of skills that will make applicants effective in the workplace. Based on recommendations from the Institute of Student Employers, UCL Careers has put together this employer-led skills session programme.
This series of employer-led workshops, panel discussions and one-to-one coaching sessions will help you understand what recruiters are looking for and how to develop and promote your skills more effectively.
This programme is a joint initiative with the Students' Union UCL.
Talks and workshops
Led by a range of leading graduate recruiters, this series of panel-based question and answer sessions or more interactive, activity-based workshops will help you understand more about the range of key skills that employers will be looking for when they are recruiting students and graduates.
A wide range of graduate recruiters have also volunteered to offer one-to-one coaching on writing applications (CVs, cover letters, personal statements etc.) and preparing for interviews through role-playing based practice interview sessions.
If you expect to attend an assessment centre for either a graduate job or internship soon, these interactive half-day sessions will allow you to practice many of the group-based activities common to a typical assessment centre and receive feedback on your performance from graduate recruiters.
