All About Placements: 8-11 February 2021

Update: this event was held in February 2021; the booking links below have been replaced with links to recordings of the live sessions, where available 

Are you thinking about doing a Year in Industry after your 2nd year, or our Year in Employment Scheme (YES)?

Or maybe you’d like to do work experience during the summer vacation, or discover what other options are available?

Perhaps you’re keen to get some work experience – but are thinking it’s a big mountain to climb in these current circumstances?

If you’ve said YES to any of the above, our All about Placements online event is just for you! There’s sessions with employers (placement supervisors and recruiters), Aber alumni, current students and Careers Consultants, all designed to highlight work experience as still a viable – and invaluable – option, as well as inform you of the support, sources and routes available. Nothing to lose, everything to gain!
