Step Up and Stand Out! Employability Development Fair

Wednesday 2nd May, 12pm – 4pm, Alan Turing Building

Sign up here

With over 20% of graduates unemployed, this event will give you the opportunity to find out more about what you can do to make yourselves more employable and to develop those skills required to secure a job once you have finished your studies and help you stand out from the crowd!

Organised by students, (the majority of us are third years) for students, this event will highlight the importance of extra-curricular activities and give you the opportunity to attend presentations, interactive workshops and speak directly to experts who will be able to help and advise you how to develop those all-important skills.

Hear from representatives from the Careers Service, including talks on Volunteering and Internships, as well as hearing from the employers’ perspective along with the chance to speak to volunteering specialists from Manchester City Council and Student Action. The interactive workshops will help you identify the skills you already have and those you need to develop.

As this event is organised by students, we understand how hard it is to look for a job, as many are in our final year looking for jobs now! This event will give you the advantage when it comes to your turn!

Our experts will be available to speak to you throughout the afternoon, however please see details of the Talks Programme and Workshops below:
