Careers Week 2021: 1-5 March, Career Inspiration in Challenging Times

It has never been so important to manage your career to achieve your ambitions. The next St George's Careers Week (our second ever!) will be taking place from 1-5 March, coinciding with the same national themed week. We will shortly to be posting details of the virtual programme here, on Canvas and on other St George's social media.   

Look out for details that will help you make the right choices, re-energise your job hunt, and boost your career.  

Open to students of all year groups and pathways, as well as recent graduates, our programme of events will address themes like Resilience, Workplace Wellbeing and Planning your Career in a Pandemic. The programme  includes Q&A sessions in which alumni from a range of disciplines and courses share their own careers and wellbeing insight, as well as advice on how to manage your own future and job hunt successfully in these unpredictable times. 

We will be revealing other useful careers and well-being resources during Careers Week and beyond to help our current students and newest alumni on their career path. In the meantime, you can find lots more resources on our Careers Pages, such as profiles, stories and advice from our alumnitips on resilience, and well-being resources

Please see below for a schedule. We hope you will be able to join us!
