Networking Tips for Students

We have a couple of events coming up in March where our students will get the opportunity to network with potential employers. A lot of students won’t have very much experience of networking, so the careers team have put together some downloads to help. They are available at the bottom of this post.


Upcoming Events:

From Monday 16 March, the Lancaster campus is holding a ‘Career Ahead Showcase Week‘ – this week will include a Supply Teaching Fair, a Volunteering & Part-Time Jobs Fair, an Employer Fair, as well as the annual Nursing Conference. All of these events will give students the opportunity to talk to potential employers.  Take a look at the events calendar for more details.

On Thursday 19 March at Brampton Road, the careers team, along with the alumni team, are holding a ‘Creative Networking‘ event for all current students and alumni who are either studying or working in a creative area. More details are available here.

On Friday 27 March, the Carlisle campus will be holding our annual Nursing Conference for final year nursing students.
