Leave uni, start work - make it happen!

Wednesday 5th September 2018

Leave uni, start work - make it happen was held at ORT House, Camden for students and recent graduates. The event was packed with presentations and advice on how to kick start your career with a series of fantastic sessions as well as one - to - one CV reviews and video CV clinics.

Resource joined with UJS to deliver ‘Leave Uni, Start Work – Make It Happen’, a workshop event for students and recent graduates to help them kick-start their career. Held at ORT House, Camden, it comprised inter-active presentations by leading recruitment and career professionals, with information, insights and advice on every aspect of establishing and achieving career ambitions. These included sessions on the value of networking and how to go about it, interview skills, how to benefit from internships, vacation and graduate schemes, making the most of attending employers’ assessment centres, one-to-one CV reviews and how to create a successful video CV.

The 50 participants were taken through the typical recruitment process, how to prepare for their job search and what recruiters look for in a candidate.

Resource is a charitable organisation that provides practical help for members of the Jewish community seeking work. CEO Victoria Sterman underlined the need for this new initiative: “Even with record lows in unemployment, more students than ever are going on to university, resulting in such a highly competitive market that 28 per cent of graduates go into jobs not requiring a university education. Clearly there is a graduate employment gap in which those about to leave or have recently left university need active help and support to bridge the gap and find their dream job. The requirement is to be able to stand out from the crowd.

“With our 25 years’ experience of helping people into work, Resource and our team of professional experts are uniquely qualified to guide graduates into the start of their careers – and all without charge.

“In conjunction with UJS, we are now planning to run tailored sessions for students and recent graduates, with further similar events in the coming year.”
