Making the transition from University to graduate employment

Whether you have secured a graduate job already or are still looking for a position, starting work for the first time can be daunting but it needn’t be. It will be different; you will face a variety of new challenges compared with those you now face at university. There will also be many opportunities open to you, for example working abroad or taking on a role very different from that which you have always imagined. By taking advantage of your time here at the University we can help you make the transition to work a successful one.

New for the spring term 11 -12 we have two ‘transition’ modules

Career Transitions – Careers and Employability Service

You will need to be free to attend an introductory session and a final session. There will be a choice of two dates for each. In addition to this you will attend 4 session of your choosing offered by the Careers and Employability Service. These could be workshops, CV review sessions or a whole range of other activities.

A timetable will be sent to students who express an interest in the module at the start of the spring term.

Michael Page International – Introduction to Workplace Preparation

This module will provide students with the opportunity to participate in business skills workshops and live business scenario training. You will develop skills in

  • Customer service, telephone skills, client management
  • Operational and organisational awareness
  • Team working and presenting

This is likely to take place both on and off campus and a timetable will be available to students who express an interest at the start of the spring term.

To register an expression of interest in one of these modules please email by the 16th December 2011
