Careers Speed Meet
A Careers Speed Meet was held exclusively for students from the Departments of European & International Studies, French, German and Spanish, Portuguese & Latin American Studies on the evening of 6 March. Organised by students and staff, this was the first event of its kind within these departments and provided a useful insight into some of the industries in which the most can be made of the unique set of skills gained from a degree in Languages or European & International Studies.
Professionals from different sectors of the job market attended, as well as alumni from the Departments of French and German to help students find out more about career opportunities. Employers included:
PathMotion (graduate careers website)
Teach First (teacher recruitment charity)
The event was very well attended. During the first half of the evening, students were split into groups and spent six minutes with professionals and alumni, asking them as many questions as possible. They then put their networking skills into action over refreshments during the second half of the evening.
