Feedback from previous Boot Campers:

Would you recommend Boot Camp to other final year students?

 100% It has been brilliant! 🙂

 Yes, yes, yes!

 Yes, I would as I have gained more knowledge and understanding of what employers are seeking


What aspects of the Boot Camp did you find useful?

 Everything! Assessment centres tests, CV help, LinkedIn help, Mock interview

 The CV, Interviews and Alumni talks were very useful as it enabled me to network.


What will I be doing?

Boot Camp is action-packed and intensive, so come prepared to work. You will be thinking about yourself, what you are looking for…and developing a plan to help you get there. Over the two days you will:

  • assess your strengths and skills
  • discover different approaches to finding jobs
  • hear from recent SHU graduates/alumni about their own experiences
  • write a great CV/application
  • find out how you can use LinkedIn
  • have a go – practice being interviewed and take part in assessment centre activities


8 and 9 September, 9am – 5pm (You need to be able to attend both days)

10 September : One to one 45 minute feedback appointments available throughout the day

Lunch and refreshments provided. Boot Camp takes place in the Careers and Employability Centre.

Places are limited, so book on here:
