Free on 18 July at 12pm and want to earn £12?

June 30, 2011

Yes, the Careers Service is offering students the chance to earn £12 simply for sharing your views over a cup of tea and a biscuit!

You will spend 1.5 hours on Monday 18th July 12-1.30pm discussing what information could help you to learn more about ’employability skills’ and help us to develop content for the Careers Service website.

We are looking to get a focus group of 8-10 students / graduates to review a few websites with us, and then to find out what type of information you think could be useful. We want to know which websites you like (we will show you some to start the ball rolling), whether you watch videos on websites and generally how you prefer to interact with web content, for example forums, quizzes, news links.

So what happens? Read the rest of this entry »
