Employability events

Attending an event such as an employer presentation or skills workshop can be a great way to find out more about different careers and recruitment processes. The Career Zone arrange many employer events, including mock interviews, networking evenings and employer drop-ins. By attending events and undertaking other career development opportunities, you can gain The Exeter Award. The Award is designed to enhance the employability of University of Exeter graduates by providing official recognition and evidence of extra-curricular activities and achievements.

Politics and International Relations students can explore more in-depth career paths through talks and presentations designed specifically for students in the College of Social Sciences and International Studies. Speakers range from recent former students to senior professionals and politicians who inspire with stories of their successful careers.

If you would like to know more about events or would like to give a presentation to Politics and International Relations students about their career options, please contact Julia Paci, Employability and Outreach Manager.

I organised a trip to the Streatham Campus for a talk by alumni who are working in the Civil Service. Not only did this provide a sense of ownership and pride, but it also gave me the insight and determination to eventually secure a place in the Civil Service Fast Stream.
