Welcome freshers and returning students

September 23, 2009

Welcome to Manchester – if it’s your first time here then I guess you are pretty busy finding out what you like & dislike about the city. I can assure you it doesn’t rain ALL the time (though a waterproof and wellies can be pretty handy!)

Manchester has a reputation as a party city and there is certainly plenty to keep you entertained! To make the best of your time at university you need to work hard and play hard.  I don’t just mean study hard – you need to get involved in volunteering, clubs, societies and get work experience.  A degree on its own is simply is not enough to get a good job and it’s never to early to start.

Beat the rush for CV and application advice!

September 14, 2009

If you are in Manchester now and think you are going to need some help with applying for jobs then don’t wait  – do it now! 

Experience tells us that in a couple of weeks people will be queuing up for applications advice.  If you can make it in now you will save yourself time and have a nice smug feeling when you see everyone else queuing later on.

Every day we run a drop in session – where you can book a 15 minute 1-1 with an adviser to help you tailor your first CV, make the best of applications or ask quick career related questions. 

So if you are applying for a job or course and need a bit of help:

  • Read the appropriate information on our website
  • Think carefully about the skills and experience required for the job.
  • Use the tips and methods described to help you tailor your application so that the employer can easily see why they should employ you.
  • Use the Quick Query drop in session to help you make any final alterations before you send it off.

If you are not in Manchester yet don’t worry – although it will be busy we will be providing extra advice on applications via talks, workshops and live guidance.


Closing dates – not always what they seem!

September 9, 2009

We have had reports from students and recruiters that by the closing date some graduate schemes are already full.  Thus those that apply later on may not be considered.
