The workshops were extremely engaging and I learned the ins and outs of landing a job. Michael Seamus

These workshops were very interesting and insightful. I learnt a lot of things about recruitment processes and tips to have outstanding CV, Cover Letter and Interview performance. We had the opportunity to understand the employability process from the employer’s perspective. Also, we were taught about ethics in the workplace, and how to stand out from the crowd, both in the recruitment process and after getting the job. Teodora Raducan

The cover letter and resume writing” session at with Prof. Elspeth McKay was ver helpful – reinforcing and building on what I already knew, as well as raising some aspects of the whole application process that I was not aware of. Nic Cherry

Overall, I am very glad that I attended the series of events. Emily Goode
