Experience Works - Work Experience & Volunteering Fair, 12:00 – 14:00 20th October, USW Pontypridd - The Conference Centre
Who should attend?
This event is an excellent opportunity for students who need to gain work experience or explore volunteering options.
Gaining relevant work experience is a great way to help develop the skills and attributes employers look for and is also a fantastic opportunity to make connections with professionals who will be useful to your future career.
Getting good work experience is one of the best ways to help you put your career plans into action.
Develop Your Skills
Employers expect applicants for their graduate opportunities to be able to give good examples of times when they have demonstrated the skills they are looking for, and the best way to do this is through work experience.
Test Out Your Career Ideas
Work experience is also a great way to “try before you buy” to see if the career you have in mind is the right one for you.
You will meet professionals whilst on work experience who may turn out to be useful contacts in the future. They can also give you good advice on breaking into that industry.
