The Students’ Union runs a number of employability projects every academic year to give you the opportunity to enhance your employability and empower you to shape your future.
The projects can be one-off events, funding opportunities, campaigns and other activities, and we use student feedback to decide which projects we should do. If you have an idea for a project that you think we should do to enhance your employability, you can contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us about your idea!
The LinkedIn photos project is your opportunity to get a high-quality photo for your LinkedIn profile. Many recruiters use LinkedIn to find the right candidates for vacancies, and LinkedIn can be a great way to use your network to reach your professional goals. Having a good LinkedIn photo can make your profile stand out and make it more likely that your profile is shown in search results.
It’s completely free, and there’s no need to book in advance – just show up. Please note, we operate a first come, first served policy. We recommend that you wear something you would wear to work in the industry you are hoping to work in. Ensure that you’re following us on social media to find out when the next session is taking place.
In the past, we have offered a range of employability projects including a Makers Market for student entrepreneurs, An Evening With… panel events with alumni and an Employability Fund for student groups.
