Employer Online Events

Here we showcase employer webinars, providing you with an opportunity to view and talk to a variety of employers and recruiters as they host an online workshop. Each employer is looking to connect with University of Manchester students and graduates. You do not need to necessarily want to work for the company to take part, however each webinar will help you understand different recruitment processes and help you learn more about how employers are working in this ‘new normal’. We would very much encourage you to listen in to a number of different webinars, workshops and employers as there are some really useful tips about how to make applications stand out and what skills employers are looking for right now that may help with your future applications for internships, placements and graduate roles.

Listed below are also our skills sessions where we are working directly with employers to run session for our students. You can also use CareersLink to search for events, as some are added very last minute so you may want to check regularly.
