Careers workshops for graduate students

27 February 2004

UCL graduate students are invited to attend a series of upcoming workshops.

Organised by UCL's Careers Service, the events are designed to provide advice and information on career progression and job application processes.

As part of the Graduate School's Skills Development Programme, a total of four career planning and management workshops are being held in February, specifically tailored for Masters students. Registration is also open for a similar series for PhD students, to be held around Easter.

The workshops explore the options available to graduates whether they wish conduct research or to consider alternative careers. The seminars will cover subjects such as 'CVs and Applications' and 'Interviews and Assessment Centres'. Students will be able to explore their personality at the 'MBTI' workshop, using the Myers Briggs Type Indicator.

Ms Stephanie Richardson, UCL's Careers Information Manager, said: "It is increasingly important for graduates to be aware of the selection process, and how to best present themselves to future employers. The myriad of choices available to today's graduates can also be very confusing, so these workshops are intended to help students explore their options."

UCL Careers Service provides free guidance and information for all UCL students, including one-to-one advice and practice interviews. By becoming a member of GradClub, recent UCL graduates can continue benefiting from the service for a small fee.
