Careers & Placement Fair 2015
Thank you to everyone who attended the Careers & Placement Fair 2015 on Wednesday 28th October. The fair hosted 93 top graduate employers presenting some of the biggest and best graduate opportunities out there. This year was one of our grandest, with a joint record high attendance of 2000 and feedback from employers being extremely positive.
There was an especially reassuring validation of the quality of our student population as pool of potential applicants, with many noting Reading student’s deserved place amongst other top flight establishment’s graduates. We hope that you found our Careers Consultancy team, who were on hand offering personal development advice, helpful. Don’t forget we’re available weekdays in Carrington!
If, perhaps, you were more enticed by the Post-Graduate Study Room, wishing to develop your skills further, explore deeper into your subject or possibly follow a career in academics, feel free to come to us for application advice, or visit the admissions website for info about requirements for your next step!
After a brilliantly inspiring talk from Ben McBean in October, and founder of Green & Black’s Jo Fairly’s empowering oration this month, our Mind the Gap series is continuing into December with more big name speakers coming in. December 3rd will see us hosting Judi James, one of the UK’s leading body language/behaviour experts. She is a regular face on television news as well as featuring on ‘Big Brother’s Little Brother’ and ‘It Takes Two’. Judi has over fifteen years’ experience training and speaking to businesses on issues such as presentation and communication skills, body language and positive image, and will be passing that expertise directly onto Reading students.
Come to this session for tips on how to deliver a convincing presentation, including the best ways to make an impact.
