HOW DO I GET A JOB? Graduate Panel, Friday November 22nd
How do graduates find work? Getting that first job is always the toughest step, and also arguably the most important. Next week on Thursday 21st November is the Jobs & Careers Fair, and the very next day is our brand-new Graduate Panel - aimed specifically at kick-starting careers in the creative arts. The panel will take place on Friday November 22nd from midday until 15.00 in the General Lecture Theatre (GLT).
Who will be there? Our guests will be Bucks graduates, many of them working in animation and digital media, who will be returning to the Uni to share their insights into how they forged their careers. They were themselves students at Bucks, so they know better than anyone what it takes to turn a degree into a career.
The graduate panel has been devised to give our students direct insight into how they might go about finding work. It was set up following suggestions which raised by third year students last year.
Some of our most successful graduates have been invited back to explain exactly how they have managed to find work, focusing on the sorts of approaches and processes that actually work in what continues to be a very competitive market place.
Don't miss it! Come along, ask questions - and take notes!
