Life at University, at least at the University of Reading, is about more than just studying. To help you discover all the experiences that you can benefit from outside of your studies – which will help you boost your employability – we invite you to the Reading Experience Day which is taking place on Wednesday 27th September, 12pm – 4pm.
Careers will be there to welcome you with our quirky characters, professional LinkedIn photos, and a cosy café area. Bear in mind that if you come and visit us, we’ll dare you to complete a list of tasks.
How well do you know yourself? Your career path is as unique as you are, that’s why we’ll challenge you to express yourself using a two-metre high Careers canvas aka backdrop and inflatable props. We’ll take your photo, and if you’ll be chosen in our draw, will turn this photo into an A3 poster to remind you of the beginning of your career and life at uni.
After passing the creative test, put on your serious face and head over to the LinkedIn photo booth to have your professional photo taken. Then, chat to our ambassadors about My Jobs Online and set your preferences to help you in your job search. Once you’ve done this, your task list is all ticked off, so go chill at the Careers Café and enjoy some cake. Whenever you feel ready, brush off the crumbs and discover all the other Careers initiatives: Thrive Mentoring, RED Award, and Placements.
Outside the Careers Zone, you’ll be able to visit the Part-time Jobs Fair, discover volunteering opportunities and learn about all the other initiatives at the University.
If you want to know more about us, who we are and what we offer, attend one of the Careers Talks @ Meadow Suite.
