With the 2013 fall semester soon coming to an end, we decided to seize the opportunity to thank those who contributed to our career workshops and activities this past semester!
We held a total of 12 career workshops over the course of the past 3 months, where we invited and had 23 guest speakers on board to hold these workshops for our students. Our guest speakers came from employers such as Dreamwork Scandinavia, Academic Search, EON, roi:recruit, TNG Group, YouCruit and Joblink, etc., and they brought with them a wealth of knowledge and information which they in turn shared with our students in order to better help equip them for their current and upcoming job searches. Additionally, we internally held 11 CV workshops during this time-frame. The students who attended our workshops ranged from bachelors to masters students coming for various programmes across the university, such as English Studies, International Relations, Computer Science, Leadership for Sustainability, Interaction Design, Public Health, etc.
On Tuesday of this week, we invited all of our guest speakers to join us for a thank you ‘fika’, and the day after, we had a similar event for the students who had actively participated in our workshops this past semester. Our guest speakers and students were given the opportunity to mingle with one another, and we in turn received useful insight and feedback on the services we provide. This will only help us better service our students in the future!
We can now wrap up and end this semester knowing that we have all expanded our network of contacts, we’ve become more knowledgeable about the job search process, and we can look forward to the year to come.
Happy holidays to all, we look forward to a successful and promising 2014!
