While the TV and journals spread economic doom and gloom, and the Great British weather remains as unpredictable as ever, it’s not all bad news…
Recession always contains a silver lining, and this one is no different. If your job has disappeared, become boring or is under threat, now could be a fantastic time to think about doing something different, probably more fulfilling, and perhaps even better paid… So, what have you got to lose?
Bad times can provide a great kick-start to the good times ahead, and more and more Alumni are getting back in touch for assistance to revitalise their careers. While some face redundancy, many fancy a change of direction, and a growing number want to find partners to set up or expand their own business. The Careers & Business Relations team can help you with any of these – and, while it’s quiet over the summer recess, we are offering Alumni up to four 1:1 coaching sessions FREE OF CHARGE!
From its recently re-vamped offices in Room Jebb 205, the CBR team provides careers guidance, sector-specific coaching and business advice, plus work placement support and subscription access to some the most powerful market research databases around.
If you’re after a new job, we offer expertise to help sharpen your CV, write a killer application letter, and polish your interview skills.
If you have plans to establish a new business or grow an existing one, we can help you to devise and rehearse a winning business pitch, or signpost bright-eyed, bushy-tailed students to hire as interns.
Working closely with the Alumni Relations team, we are also developing an amazing international network of business connections in a wide variety of industries – and, no promises, but we may be able to introduce you to impressive people you can employ, partner with, or seek investment from.
To set things moving, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone +44 (0) 20 7487 7419 to book an appointment and the CBR team will be delighted to assist you.
But it’s first come, first served and places are strictly limited, so act today and don’t delay!
