It’s nearly the start of a brand new term. The ‘what am I going to do with all this time’ summer is over. What did you do with yours: earnt money, did some work experience, eat.sleep.rave.repeat?
Whatever you did we are thrilled to have you back at Kent. While you’ve been away we in the Careers and Employability Service have been preparing all sorts of exciting things for you. Our hope is that they will take the stress out of finding jobs and work experience, applying for grad roles or continuing your studies. We offer everything from quick CV checks and job finding workshops, to mock interviews and assessment centres. Pop along to any one of our free sessions during the term to collect employability points.
And for those of you arriving for the first time this September – WELCOME! It’s good to have you with us. Really embrace all the great stuff university has to offer. Be enriched with subject knowledge and practical skills through your course; develop courage and resilience as you navigate university life, some of you away from home for the first time; realise your strengths and weaknesses; get better at planning your time (or faster at typing!). All these skills add up to one super employable graduate.
Once you’ve settled in to your halls/houses you’ve got your timetable and you’re in a good rhythm, why not come and see us?
The Careers and Employability Service is open:
We’re located between Keynes College and the large D-shaped bus stop. You can pop in for a 5 minute chat or book a 45 minute appointment with one of our advisers. There are computers to use and helpful resources to take away. All this info and more can be found on our website: Www.kent.ac.uk/ces. We look forward to seeing you soon!
