Virtual Work Experience 2021

We are excited to announce our brand-new virtual work experience event.

The Catch 22 surrounding work experience can seem impossible to overcome. To get a job, you need experience, but to gain experience, you need a job.

Our virtual work experience programme is here to help you break out of this loop by boosting your employability, building new skills, introducing you to new contacts and expanding your professional network.

You will take part in activities designed to challenge, inspire and expand your knowledge. We will be joined by industry experts from the likes of IBM, Bloomberg, L'Oréal, Pearson and the BBC. They will share their own stories of breaking into the world of work, letting you in on secrets that helped them secure their first job.

This is an exciting opportunity for you to boost the impact your CV will have on future employers. A FREE course tailored to help YOU land your first job, all from the comfort of your own home. Don't miss out...
