Long hot summer…

With the end of the academic year fast approaching, now’s a good time to think of how to boost your CV over the summer months.   Work experience can be invaluable.  The Shell Step scheme is now open to second year/penultimate year and final year students and offers eight-week paid placements with small and medium-sized companies and community organisations.   For other work experience ideas go to the work experience section of the Careers Service website. If you fancy doing a bit volunteering check out Time Bank and Do It.  Both will help you find something near to where you live.  And, of course, there’s volunteering info on the careers site that’s easy to register for and browse.   If you want to brush up your IT skills, or learn something new, why not ring the government backed careers advice service tel 0800 101 901, and ask about short courses.   However, it’s worth seeing what’s out there before you commit.   Finally, don’t forget to register for vacancies on our website so you don’t miss out!
