#MyNextSteps Workshops

Our #MyNextSteps Workshops cover your entire career journey from exploring potential careers to working on CVs and succeeding at interviews. These workshops are available as recordings on our KEATS pages and as live workshops throughout the year.

Our #MyNextSteps workshop topics are:

Reflect on your interests, strengths and values, and the varied career options available to King’s students and graduates.

Analyse information about the UK graduate jobs market, explore ways to search for career opportunities and examine models for making career-related decisions.

Explore ideas for getting internships and work experience, virtual work experience possibilities and ways to demonstrate your resilience.

Examine ways to connect with people in sectors you’re interested in, find career mentors and develop a personal brand.

Identify the steps to tailoring your CVs, cover letters and applications to the opportunity you’re applying for.

Investigate ways to shine at job interviews and how to prepare for psychometric tests and assessment centres.


Discover Careers in... Panels

Our Discover Careers in... panel events feature speakers working in certain industries and sectors who tell you what it is like to do their job, what you need to get into it and how they got there.

They will share their own career stories, tips and information on their sector and this is followed by an opportunity to ask questions. Listen to their stories to discover what it’s really like and bring your own questions to help refine your focus. 

This series covers careers in around 40 different sectors including: 

Hot Pink Singular Cube  Charities & NGOs
Sea Blue Singular Cube  Life & Health Sciences
Orange Singular Cube  Banking, Finance & Consultancy
Teal Singular Cube  Advertising, Communications & PR
Purple Singular Cube  Think Tanks, Government & Public Policy
Sky Blue Singular Cube  Data Science, AI & Machine Learning
Orange Singular Cube  Law and the Legal Sector

Other Workshops

  • In your Faculty or Department 

Specialised Careers Consultants who know all about your degree and your possible future career choices deliver workshops in most academic departments. They include everything from the career options available for students with your degree to how to prepare for entry into specific careers.

We also run a programme tailored for postgraduate research students and an annual Focus on Masters week.

  • The Graduate Labour Market

At the start of each academic year, our Employer Engagement teams run webinars on the latest data and trends in graduate recruitment, helping students navigate and make the most of their early few weeks at King's.

  • Events for International Students

In addition to our core events where we often welcome global employers interested in recruiting King's students, we also run regular workshops on key labour markets including China, the United States, India and France and partner with colleagues in our Visa & International Student Advice Team (VISAT) to update students on the latest UK visa changes.

  • Entrepreneurship & Starting-Up

We run sessions for those interested in self-employment and support the King’s Entrepreneurship Institute in their development of future entrepreneurs.

Spring 2022

This spring many of our events continue online to ensure we can safely host activities to as many of our service users as possible. If timetabling permits, we will explore hosting physical workshops in a COVID-secure environment later in the spring.
