During inter-semester break the Careers Service is running a series of events for international students who want to work in the UK. The events will cover every stage of the career planning process. There will be events covering understanding the UK job market, writing UK style job applications, succeeding in job interviews and more.
The week will also include a guest speaker event on visas. Zenia Chopra who is Head of Client Services within the Immigration Department at Kingsley Napley LLP will give an overview of visa options post-graduation.
As well as talks, there will be dedicated one-to-one application feedback and practice interview sessions available.
