Higher-degree by research (HDR) students, we haven’t forgotten about you! We have a couple of workshops on in July you may wish to attend.
Making the Most of LinkedIn (for HDR students only) | Thursday 6 July | 300.219, Bentley Campus
Attend this workshop to learn about the basics of how LinkedIn works, as well as tips and strategies about how to improve your LinkedIn content, credibility and contribution to help you achieve your career and networking goals. At the end of this workshop, you will understand how employers find talent on LinkedIn and create an action plan of how you can boost your visibility, develop vital industry networks and tap into job opportunities.
Drive Your Career (for HDR students only) | Tuesday 11 July | 300.219, Bentley Campus
Explore the concept of emotional intelligence (EQ) and its relevance not just to graduates and early career professionals, but also to job performance and career success. With graduate recruiters consistently listing emotional intelligence as one of the top ten criteria they look for when hiring, you can proactively work to grow your own EQ. This workshop will help you evaluate and enhance your current level of emotional intelligence, analyse the link between emotional intelligence and career resilience, and apply emotional intelligence when communicating and building relationships with others.
