Career Chat: Why extracurriculars are important
University is about more than just what goes on inside the classroom.
From volunteering on campus and your local community, to becoming a club or society executive, casual or part-time work, personal development workshops, and more, extracurricular opportunities compliment your studies.
Participating in these activities will enable you to develop your employability skills so that you can transition into the workforce and connect with future employers with confidence.
Career Chat sessions are compact and designed to keep you up to date with the latest developments in the world of employment.
Presentations will be held via Zoom, where participants can listen to presenters and ask questions about that session’s ‘Careers Chat’. For those that are unable to attend, the sessions will be recorded and uploaded for you to watch at your convenience.
Past Careers Chats have featured topics and guests such as: Online Interview Skills, Staying Motivated While Applying For Work, Finding a Job While You Study, and more. You can catch up on past Careers Chats in CareerHub here.
