Skills workshop – finding part-time work with the Jobshop

Kent Union is holding a workshop on how to find a part-time job with the use of services offered by the Jobshop, and how to make yourself more competitive when looking for a job with tips on CVs and covering letters. They will also be talking about the Employability Points scheme and the benefits it offers.

The workshop will be held at 1pm on Wednesday 24th January in Grimond Seminar Room 5. For more details see the event on Facebook.

If you can’t make it this week, the workshop will be held again later this term.

CES CV competition – open until 28th Feb

The Careers and Employability Service is currently running their annual CV Competition, sponsored by Santander Universities.

All you have to do to enter is submit your CV, and if yours is judged to be an example of really good practice and presentation, you could win a two-week work experience placement with a range of different employers.

This is a great incentive (if you need one!) to get your CV up to date and ensure that it is the best representation of your skills and experience it can be. Head to the CES website for more information, how to apply, and the companies the CES works with to provide the work experience placements.
