The University Employability Festival is taking place from 10 October until 4 November 2016.
An exciting range of Employability events are on offer at the Medway and Canterbury campuses for all students:
- Medway Campus 10 – 21 October 2016
- Canterbury Campus 24 October – 4 November 2016
Staff and students are being encouraged to get involved with Kent’s award-winning Employability Festival. Building on the success of previous years, Academic Schools, Kent and GK Unions and Professional Services are joining together with the Careers and Employability Service to offer students and graduates a fantastic assortment of career and skills development activities. Students can take part in competitions, get advice on CVs, skills development, interviews, assessment centres and much more.
The highlight of the Festival is the annual University of Kent Careers Fair at the Canterbury Campus on Tuesday 1 November. This Fair hosts over 100 organisations from different industry sectors eager to meet with students. It is a great chance to get information about graduate employers and discover what they do. The Employability Fair at Medway will be hosting over 50 exhibitors on Wednesday 12 October. Students and graduates will have the chance to meet with organisations providing career opportunities, volunteering positions and postgraduate study options.
Events are planned all over the campuses and students are welcome to attend as many as they can. The great news is that most events are open to students from all stages and Schools.
