Calling all BU Students – Want to stand out in the Graduate Jobs Market? Bright Futures Needs You!

What is Bright Futures?

  • We are a network of over 50 student led employability societies in universities across the UK. Supported and connected by a National Team, each society runs their own interactive and fun events for students on their campus to connect with and learn from leading employers.
  • Each society is made up of a small team of students who work with great employers to run career focused events. There are a range of roles available in each committee, such as President, Event Manager and Marketing officer (but ultimately everyone works together.)
  • Your committee are in control of deciding what type of events you would like to run, how often and with which employers (for example, you might want to run a Mock Assessment workshop with BP to learn more about assessment centres.)

The benefits

  • Having the chance to run a Bright Futures society of your own at BU.
  • Wide range of innovation, informative and often unique training and networking events.
  • Boost employability skills.
  • Accessibility to 21 of our employer contacts.
  • 60% of our Bright Futures committee members had a job before the end of their final year.
  • Personalised support to help you find and secure that great internship and / or graduate position.
  • Looks fantastic on your CV/Applications.

Running your own Bright Futures society would be a great step towards making you stand out in the grad market. So, if you are interested in getting involved in the society, go to the website at www.mykindafuture.com/Society/Undergraduates & email me at katie@mykindafuture.com.
