Insight

Date: 17 October 2018
Time: 13:00

Booking and Further Information

Insight (formerly known as EXPO) isn’t a recruitment event, like a standard careers fair, but a series of different career sector panels, where we bring in alumni and professionals to talk about their experiences and give an insight in to their chosen career paths. It’s a relatively relaxed occasion, with no PowerPoint displays, just each of our panelists (usually 4-5 in total) talking about their journey after university, what they "actually" do day to day, and any top tips on how to succeed in their sector. 

It’s a fantastic opportunity for students from across the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures to gain a better understanding of potential future careers. We aim for the event to be as informative, engaging and thought-provoking as possible so try our best to get interesting, innovative and creative panelists on-board for you all to hear from!

The afternoon is open to all students from the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures so no matter what year you're currently studying in, come along and listen to people who have studied your degree subjects and are working in the sectors you want to work in!

The panels are:

Marketing, Communications & PR
Working with Languages
Public Sector & Policy
Theatre & Performance
Media & Journalism
Fashion & Textiles
Arts Admin & Heritage
Creative Writing & Publishing
Art & Design
Music Production & Performance
Making a Difference & Third Sector
