#MySummerNetworking

Our #MySummerNetworking campaign offers a carefully curated programme which enables you to reach students in the summer term, tailored to fit around their examination focus.

Highlight your opportunities, help students to develop the skills you require, navigate your recruitment process, and connect with students effectively as we make a return to campus activity.

  • Advertise and highlight your recruitment campaign and opportunities available. These may include summer internships and work experience, graduate opportunities, placements and promotion of graduate schemes that open early to applications over the summer months
  • Take part in our Get Connected! series of tailored face to face events taking place in weeks 1-9
  • Raise and rebuild the profile of your organisation and help to build student confidence as we return to face to face events
  • Digital engagement - Get involved and support our new Micro learning campaign that focuses on networking skills and empowering students to connect
  • Provide Careers stories from Alumni and recent graduates within your organisation
  • Get Hired! - Join our Summer Recruitment Fair as we celebrate being back on campus!

Get Connected!

This series of events runs from week 1-9 and aims to provide opportunities for students to meet with employers in our Student Opportunity Hub space.

Recognising that first and second year students have not yet had an opportunity to meet employers face to face whilst at University and our finalists may feel uneasy reconnecting, this series will provide accessible, bite-sized sessions for students in a non threatening space. Get Connected! will allow students to build their confidence and develop their networking skills with support and encouragement from employers.

Sessions are available on Tuesdays and Thursdays over the lunchtime period and may be delivered as a structured workshop, informal drop-in or networking session, interactive activity or bookable one to one clinics. As part of the #MySummerNetworking campaign employers should aim to contribute to the theme with suitable sessions including:

  • An introduction to networking
  • Why is networking important?
  • Introductions and ice breakers
  • Making a good first impression
  • The networking process
  • Ethical networking
  • The Elevator pitch
  • Meet the recruiter sessions - informal drop in sessions to simply talk and engage
  • CV and advice clinics
  • Preparing for a Careers Fair (week 9 only)

If you would like to run alternative sessions to those listed please get in touch to discuss options - we welcome your involvement!

There is no charge to deliver a Get Connected! session. Email employerconnect at warwick dot ac dot uk to register your interest and to secure a date.

Please note that priority will be given to those attending the Get Hired! Summer Careers Fair in the first instance.

Digital Engagement - Join our Micro Learning Campaign

Continuing with our #MySummerNetworking theme we are seeking support and involvement from employers as we develop a new Micro learning campaign for students.

Running in parallel to the #MySummerNetworking programme the campaign will support students in their learning and understanding of networking, helping to break down barriers to engagement, encourage participation and build student confidence.

Find out more about Microlearning and how it supports our students development here.

Content will be shared via our social media and You Tube channels ensuring your employer profile is raised enabling you to firmly re-establish your brand within our student community.
