The University open day took place on 15 June, and was attended by about 3000 people. Careers and Employment always have a presence at the open days, but this time Paul Helm did a support talk called “Preparing you for your career.” Paul commented that, ‘…more people signed up for the talk than I expected, and think it was definitely something worth doing. The main points that I made were about the massive range of opportunities on offer for students to enhance their employability, and the support that is there for them from day one’.
Sheila Quairney from the Research and Innovation Office then talked about the support on offer for self employment and how Sheffield Hallam supports students in developing enterprise skills. Sheila also described the work of the Venture Matrix.
Also, three of the students who feature in the Tomorrow’s You campaign – Henna, Tom, and Laurie spoke about different aspects of the support they had in preparing for their career. You can watch their videos here.
