Employer skills sessions and drop-ins

Attending an employer drop-in is a great way of finding out more about a certain employer, the sector that they work in and the selection criteria that they use to recruit. You will have the opportunity to ask the employer questions and get advice about how to make the transition into a competent professional once you start your placement, internship or graduate job. Employer drop-ins normally take place in the Careers & Employability Hub, Roland Levinsky Building, and you can view upcoming drop-ins by visiting our events calendar using the link above.  

We regularly have employers on campus to deliver skills sessions designed to help you develop a certain skill or knowledge base. This could cover top tips for what employers look for at an interview or how they shortlist applications, skills development around a topic such as commercial awareness or developing core competencies such as leadership, team work, communication and much more. These are incredibly useful to attend as they give a real world, professional opinion on what employers look for when recruiting.

Sessions are open to all students to book onto regardless of course or stage, plus our graduates can also come along too. To see who’s visiting over the next few weeks take a look at our Careers & Employability events calendar.

If you have any questions or suggestions on who you’d like to us to invite in to talk to you we would love to hear from you - please contact Rhys or Sarah on employers.careers@plymouth.ac.uk or +44 1752 587729.

We hope to see you at an employer skill session or drop-in soon.
