Your Careers Update!

The countdown to Easter is now officially on, which is great news for all those stressed-out students. It’s really important to be thinking about careers now, especially if you are a final year and haven’t spent much time researching this. Worry not, however; we have tons of information from The Careers Service to give to you all. They are always happy to meet students individually as well, so feel free to go to the Atrium (first floor of University Place) to book an appointment or get more advice. Check out CareersLink and the History Society Facebook group for more information. Below are some of the highlights:

Meet the History Grads – Meet the History grads is back on Thursday, March 16! This was a really popular event last year and is a great opportunity to see where people that once studied history degrees at Manchester have ended up. It’s the perfect excuse for networking and there will be lots of free food and wine too. What’s not to love?

Working Abroad in Summer – Are you interested in spending your summer working in a different country? This is a great way to push yourself out of your comfort zone, build your CV and get in a bit of travelling. What’s more, you would be earning cash (and simultaneously getting your parents off your back about being productive in the holidays!) Check out the UoM Careers website for more information.

Dimensions Presents: The Networking Event – On Thursday, April 27 from 4-6pm, Dimensions will be hosting a networking event at the University of Manchester. The event will involve guest speakers discussing grad schemes with a Q&A session and breakout workshops afterwards involving CV work and interview skills. This will allow students of the university to network with senior managers. Admission is free, so get your tickets now to secure a place!

Whether you are interested in these events or not, keep going with your own research! If you are really struggling, speak to your academic advisor, and if you don’t know where to start, join one of the appropriate Facebook groups – just search First/Second/Final Years Careers – UoM Humanities.

Good luck in your Careers search!
