This year the Careers and Employability team are organising a series of events to support you in developing your career.
We’re excited to have local creatives Laura Mulhern (Arts Commissioner) and Illustrator and Adobe Creative Resident, Octavia Bromell running workshops throughout the year to support any students considering freelancing.
We are also really pleased to be continuing our relationship with Sam Howell Business Consultants Sam has helped a number of our AUB students start their own businesses “Starting my own business was so daunting and scary until I met Sam and his team at AUB. I wouldn’t be where I am this quickly without his and their help” Beth Hawker, AUB Alumna BA (Hons) Make-Up for Media and Performance
There will also be a number of lunchtime workshops with advice and guidance on a number of career-related subjects, from CVs to considering your options and using LinkedIn effectively.
Here’s the current schedule for our 2020 events, more will be added as the year progresses.
Find out more and book on to events on the AUB Advantage Career Hub.
