Employer Skills Session: PwC Business Game - Cocotel 

  • Venue: 11am-1pm: Room 117, Rolle Building 

This interactive skills session allows you to work in groups to complete a business game exercise. Following this session, you will learn more about PwC and be able to apply this knowledge with a commercial mindset. You will also learn the importance of working as a team to achieve a common goal. 

Accelerate Workshops

  • Venue: Room 207, Roland Levinsky Building.

Be enterprising and move your career into top gear – Accelerate!

So, the graduate market is back on the up – great! So the papers and web are brimming with employers, desperate to hire graduates – or you – right?  Not quite. In fact, a staggering 70% of graduate jobs do not make it to advertisement, so students and graduates need to be proactive and creative in their approach to their search for jobs, placements or internships. Quite simply, making it happen instead of hoping it will happen or being enterprising.

It’s fitting then, that for Enterprise Week, the Employability Service’s Accelerate programme workshops focus on hunting down graduate jobs and using social media to do more than show kittens and last night’s tea – employers are active online.

The Accelerate workshops are open to students of all subjects and levels so sign up today!  

Hunt down those graduate schemes and jobs (1pm-1.45pm)

Brand yourself - be social media savvy (2pm-2.45pm)

Employer Presentation: Commercial awareness skills session (delivered by PwC)

  • Venue: 2pm-4pm: Room 206, Roland Levinsky Building

Commercial awareness is a key attribute that recruiters are looking for but many graduates do not have the confidence to demonstrate. Commercial awareness is an understanding of how organisations work and what makes them successful and many factors come in to play when considering commercial awareness. 

This session introduces you to the concept of commercial awareness, how to develop your commercial awareness and how to effectively demonstrate commercial awareness to employers. 

Get yourself ahead of the game and ahead of the competition at this skills session delivered by industry experts from PwC.
