Careers Service


Online Workshops

We want to stay connected with you as much as possible during this time. We are here for you and have created a series of Online Workshops which we hope you'll join us for. We also have a new 'Lunchtime Live' series of sessions from employers. You can find details of all upcoming events on CareersLink.

Upcoming events

What is an online workshop?

We will be looking at a variety of different Careers and Employability topics in short 30 minute sessions with the opportunity to ask questions to our Careers Team afterwards. We are using a number of different virtual platforms to host these. Registration instructions will be given below.

How will I know when these are running?

All Online Workshops will be added to CareersLink under 'Careers Fairs & Events' and given an Event ID. We’ll be promoting the workshops on this page and also via social media.

I can’t make the live session, can I still access it?

Yes of course! We realise we have students based in many different countries where time zones are different. We also know many of our students are working, have caring responsibilities, academic commitments, and lots of other things going on. It’s okay - you can access our online workshop sessions on our YouTube Playlist. You'll also find a range of videos and a range of ‘On Demand’ workshops via our Careers Service YouTube Channel.
