This is my second year in the role and I’ve carried out numerous tasks supporting both the College of Social Sciences specifically and also Careers Network as a whole. As a Brand Promoter for CoSS, I liaise with lecturers on a regular basis to carry out lecture shouts promoting the careers services provided by Careers Network and to highlight key events that Careers Network is running.
Last year, I had responsibility for compiling the CoSS Careers fortnightly newsletter and gained experience using specialist software. In addition to these tasks for CoSS, I have supported Careers Network at Careers Fairs. I have been able to help throughout the process, from preparing materials and resources prior to events to the final tidy up at the end of the day. I really enjoy being a representative for the Careers Network to both students, when carrying out lecture shouts, and also to visiting employers at careers fairs; I have been able to develop my communication and interpersonal skills as a result. Moreover, I love being part of the team and actively helping to support the services Careers Network provides.
