The university's Guidance & Employability Team (GET) ran a series of activities at the Greenwich and Medway campuses as part of National Student Employment Week.
These included one-to-one advice sessions, to help students develop their employment skills and improve their career prospects. The university's employability experts also gave students personalised feedback on their CVs and held mock job interview sessions.
GET staff hosted a series presentations and workshops, covering topics such as job-hunting using social media, employment for international students and working in the charity and voluntary sectors.
Naz Alam, who co-ordinated the events, says: "The events proved popular throughout the university and we highlighted the areas students were most interested in. For example, we saw a high demand for mock interview skills sessions, and for information about careers in teaching."
National Student Employment Week is an annual event which aims to bring students and employers together. It is organised by The National Association of Student Employment Services, which hosted a virtual fair online throughout the week to showcase the different career opportunities open to graduates.
