Concluded Events

PricewaterhouseCoopers - 'Developing and Applying Commercial Awareness'

 Date:    Tuesday, 09 March 2010
Time:    18:00 - 20:00
Venue:    B0.01 (Lecture Theatre) WBS Building, Scarman Road

 The term 'Commercial Awareness' is used widely in recruitment but what does it mean? On one level it is the ability to understand what is going on in the business world and even more importantly how this may affect the industry sector for which you are applying. On another level it could be described as what you may have noticed and experienced whilst undertaking part time employment which can help you understand and explore business issues.

At the end of the session we will equip you with starting points for developing strong commercial awareness and provide some guidance on how to apply this both in selection process and throughout your future career. You will have developed several key transferable skills through various forms of work experience and we will help you recognise and articulate them.

The session will start with a presentation on why commercial awareness is important, you will then have the opportunity to get involved in business discussions in groups.

The KPMG 'Get Ahead of the Game' skills session

Thursday Febuary 4 2010 at 18:00
Venue: B0.01 (Lecture Theatre)

With the graduate job market getting increasingly competitive by the minute, it's even more important that you're prepared for the challenge ahead. And that's exactly what KPMG's 'Get Ahead of the Game' skills session aims to equip you for.

We'll explain why it's so important to learn everything you can about the companies you're applying to. How to go about finding the information you need. And how to use it to your advantage. In short, we really will be giving you the chance to get ahead.
