Humsforhire – Calling all Humanities students! 6 – 17 March 2017

hums-for-hireCalling all Humanities students!

The Faculty of Humanities is holding 10 days of exciting events to support students in thinking about a broad variety of career paths.  Whether you are certain on the field you want to go into once you graduate, or are still struggling to decide on what to have for dinner tonight, these events will provide information and advice on all of the possibilities open to you.

The beauty of being a Humanities student is that our potential career avenues are endless; from key positions in civil service, journalists, teachers, marketing directors and even working for the MI6.  Humsforhire is hosting an array of workshops to cater for these different interests, including some of the following:

  • Humanities CV Clinic
  • Teacher Training Applications
  • Graduate Schemes – everything you need to know!
  • Have you Googled yourself lately?
  • Graduate schemes: Where? Why? How?
  • Personal Effectiveness

In addition, we are holding events with people from outside of the University, with exciting guests ranging from:

  • Caroline Hewitt, producer and production manager best known for The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy (2005) and Mr Bean’s Holiday (2007) – Caroline will be attending ‘A Career In The Movies’ Workshop on Thursday 16th March
  • Sarah Bolwell, Production Editor of the Burlington Magazine, who will be sharing her experiences on how her MA led her directly down to the career she wanted. This event is ‘The MA track to employability’ on Tuesday 7th March
  • We will also be having a coffee shop drop in with the Deputy Curator at the Royal Engineers Museum who has offered to give one-to-one advice on those interested in a career in the museum/heritage sector.

With many more workshops and events listed in the Humsforhire programme, there is something for everyone to get involved in and benefit from.

How to get involved?

Simple!  To book your place onto any of the Humsforhire events, head to and for more information please go to or drop in to the Careers and Employability Services just next to Keynes bus stop on the Canterbury campus!

It is going to be a great few days and we can’t wait to see you there!
