VC gets linked in as visit marks official launch

Yesterday marked the official launch of the new centre. The theme for the day was ‘using social media to find work’.

Sessions in the teaching space upstairs were full booked with many students and a handful of staff finding out more about using social media to enhance
their employability. The VC, Philip Jones, attended the launch at lunchtime and spoke to students in the LinkedIn workshop.

There was a steady stream of students and staff in the centre all day to enjoy the free cupcakes and to find out what was on offer to enhance the employability of students at the University.

Today (Tuesday) current students will present their ‘top tips’ on gaining experience to enhance your cv (NB – a Top Tips booklet is available  https://students.shu.ac.uk/services/careers/docs/Top_tips_2013.pdf)
and in the afternoon there is a workshop again involving current students, to launch the new Global graduates scheme, and a workshop on presentation skills. Places are available at each workshop, bookable through the employability tab on shuspace.
