Attending a Virtual Skills and Progression Show - Careers
Virtual Skills and Progression show – Tuesday 2nd March 2021*
The Careers Team at MidKent College are excited to be hosting a Virtual Skills and Progression Show for our current students.
You will have the opportunity to:
- Speak with employers live
- Find out more about the companies who are taking part and what skills and attributes they look for from their employees
- Learn about future career opportunities with them.
How will this help me?
In the ever-changing world of work it is important that you are aware of the different skills and attributes that you have, how these fit in with what employers are looking for, and how they can be transferred and utilised across different job roles and sectors – especially so now that we find ourselves in very uncertain times.
You will be able to speak with a wide range of employers from a variety of industries and we would encourage you to also speak with employers who you would not necessarily think of working for. Construction companies for instance, will still have HR, management and finance teams!
You may be pleasantly surprised at how transferrable your skills are into different jobs and career areas. For example, the team-working skills you have learnt from working on group projects during your study programme are useful for almost any career. This virtual event will help you to recognise the skills you have and how you can present them to employers in your CV, job applications and interviews.
We will be posting more information about how to sign up nearer to the event date, so keep an eye on the MidKent College social media pages and Moodle.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
*Please note that this event is for current students of MidKent College only.
