Careers Drop-in, Monday 22 & Tuesday 23 October, Aberconway Building
For careers advice you should drop-in and see our Careers Advisers Jane and Mandy at the Careers & Employability Drop-in, where you can chat informally and gain help and advice with all your careers queries including: potential employers, Cardiff’s graduate destinations and all aspects of your career planning and preparation. The drop-in runs on Monday 22 and Tuesday 23 October in Aberconway Building.

As well as the drop-in you can also attend Employer Skills Sessions.  These sessions give you the perfect opportunity to find out more about the recruitment process and typically will give you hints and tips on how to succeed in all areas of the recruitment process.
