Boost your employability skills whilst at BU and Stand out from the Job Crowd. 


Access your Careers & Employability Action Plan for Semester Two! 

Employers tell us that a degree alone is no longer enough in a competitive placement and graduate jobs market. They are seeking students and graduates who stand out from the crowd through well-developed transferable skills, gained from a range of extra-curricular activities and work experience undertaken during their time at university.

With this in mind therefore, taking advantage of every opportunity that is available to you whilst at BU will be crucial in ensuring that you develop your skills and CV which will help you to stand out from the crowd when searching for Placements and Graduate Jobs.

The sooner you start thinking about it therefore the better and so to help the Careers & Employability Service have put together a calendar of action which will give you a good idea of what opportunities are available to you throughout your studies and what you should be thinking about at different stages of your studies to ensure you know what you need to do in order to become as employable as possible.
