The UK's leading Postgraduate Study Fair has a new look and feel to both its website and branding. The refresh accommodates the changing needs of prospective postgraduate students and universities exhibiting at the fair.
Autumn term's always a busy time for employer events and graduate fairs. Here are some particular highlights with careers events in London aimed at LGBT students and graduates:
We’ve all been through bouts of unemployment in our lives - spending endless hours scrolling through job listings, writing and rewriting your CV while being part of a huge pool of jobseekers.
When you finally get to the job interview stage, it can be tempting to fall into the trap of moulding yourself to what you think the employer wants you to be. You ditch your personality and take the safe route of transforming into a clone candidate. You start replying to questions with what you think they want to hear, rather than saying what you truly feel. Being honest in that all-important job interview is key to ensuring the employer and you are a good match. If you try to conform to a pre-set mould, you’ll soon find yourself frustrated at work later on.
Don’t try to fit the imaginary mould, create your own!
As businesses compete for talent, expand into new markets and accelerate innovation, diversity and inclusiveness is a source of competitive advantage.
