Showing 1 - 5 of 18 events

Face to face networking workshop - open to all

Date: 18 February 2019
Time: 12:00

Booking and Further Information

Last year it was reported that 78% of jobs were filled in professional services firms by individuals who had an existing relationship with their future employer. In the same study it was found that 29% of jobs were never externally advertised at all.

Networking has never been more important in establishing yourself as the best candidate for a vacancy. As undergraduates, the marketplace for jobs is as competitive as ever and being able to utilise a contact book gained from successful networking can be the key to securing your dream position.

This workshop covers:

  • Networking preparation and ensuring you feel comfortable at an event;
  • How to interact with individuals and groups during the event;
  • How to listen effectively;
  • The guide to an ‘elevator pitch’; and
  • How to follow up after an event.

 This is a generic workshop, open to all degree disciplines and years. Hosted by Mazars LLP.

Mazars LLP is an international professional firm with a local office in Leeds specialising in audit, tax and business advisory services. Each year we employ over a dozen entry level positions including graduate positions and summer internships for University students mid-degree.





Only available for University of Leeds students and recent graduates.

Challenges and Personal Battles: A Motivational Talk About Overcoming Barriers and Facing Your Fears

Date: 19 February 2019
Time: 15:00

Booking and Further Information

Get Motivated and Think Positively - inspirational talk by Abigail Irozuru

Hitting rock-bottom after under performing or failing to meet your personal expectations can hit you hard to the point of no return. However, anecdotal examples like Abigail’s, should act as a lesson to us all, to persist in working harder and most importantly, NEVER GIVING UP.

After attending this talk, you will be inspired, leaving with a sense of determination to tackle the second semester, with motivation to engage with your upcoming challenges.

You will leave with a greater understanding of how to manage negative thoughts and behaviours that could be holding you back. Now more than ever, it is important to know who we are and what we are capable of, additionally, when we are at breaking point.

Come along to this one-time guest appearance in Roger Stevens (LT 21) at 3pm on Tuesday 19 February 2019 for a motivational talk, FREE of charge. As you know, one’s mental health and education are paramount to general success. We can’t promise you a life transformation, but what we can promise you is a spring in your step and an optimistic outlook going forwards.

This event has been arranged by the Sociology and Social Policy Society and supported by the Careers Centre.

It is open to ALL students from any degree discipline and year.

Venue: Roger Stevens (LT 21)
