SUMMER FAIR

#GetConnected - a series of face to face events to help connect you with employers

If you are thinking about how to build your confidence and approach an employer in person, how to build your network, or you are wondering how to secure the job you know you want, the #GetConnected events programme provides the resources and support you need to explore all the opportunities available to you.

#GetConnected will provide you with opportunities to meet employers and develop your networking skills, learning everything from the basics of an introduction through to expanding your network. Sessions will include:

  • CV clinics where employers will help you review your CV and understand how to use it in conversation
  • workshops where you can develop networking techniques
  • meet the recruiter sessions where you can simply drop in and have informal conversations with employers of interest or practice your networking and gain real time feedback

#GetHired - Summer Careers Fair, will also help you connect with potential employers, giving you the chance to meet with a wide-range of employers and discover the wealth of opportunities available to you as a Warwick student.
