Get the skills this summer to secure an intership
There are only 120 places for the 24,000 students currently at UCL on a first come first serve basis, so I’ve tried to pass this information on immediately so readers of this blog can benefit.
The Careers Summer School is a fantastic opportunity to gain the tools and secrets of how to secure an internship or graduate job; so come autumn’s recruitment season you’ll be well ahead of the curve.
UCL Careers Service Graduate Scheme Summer Schools 2011*
*Week 1: Wednesday 14th to Friday 16th September OR*
*Week 2: Monday 19th to Wednesday 21st September*
Approximate Timings: 10.00am to 4.00pm each day
Graduate schemes and internships are offered by many larger employers looking to recruit future talent and are seen as a fast-track route to career progression. Competition for places can be intense and it is important to apply as early as possible as recruiters often start selecting candidates long before applications deadlines close.
The summer school is a bespoke programme of activities designed to give you a real head start for schemes opening for applications in the Autumn of 2011 or for remaining places that recruiters are looking to fill for immediate start.
Programme activities include:
· an introduction to the UK graduate labour market, graduate schemes and what employers are looking for;
· an opportunity to meet and hear from current graduate scheme employer staff
· an application ‘toolkit’ including workshops on CVs & applications, aptitude tests; interviews and other assessment centre techniques;
· an insight into how to make the most of the careers service support available to you
Priority will be given to those attending all 3 days. A returnable £25 deposit is required to confirm your place. To find out more and register for your place see: _http://www.ucl.ac.uk/careers/events/skills/summerschool_. Please note that the careers office is closed for its annual closure week re-opening on Monday 8th August. If you have problems registering, please contact the career service then.
