Class of 2020
Written by Career Relationship Manager for DTA, Sam
The Career Studio offers support to all graduates from Staffordshire University with anything careers related. This academic year we have worked with many students from the Class of 2020 to support them in successfully obtaining jobs after they have graduated, and we will continue to support the Class of 2020 and other Staffordshire University graduates in the future.
All graduates can receive peer-to-peer support from our Career Coaches in the Career Studio with a variety of different employability related issues such as, finding opportunities, completing applications, writing a CV and cover letter, interview skills, networking, further study or simply thinking about what to do next. In order to access this support all graduates can email firstname.lastname@example.org or chat to our Career Coaches at https://www.staffs.ac.uk/students/careers/careers-studio/chat-to-our-careers-coaches. We also have a dedicated website for the graduates of the Class of 2020 containing advice, support and information to help you with your future https://www.staffs.ac.uk/students/careers/support-for-our-graduates/class-of-2020.
If you are a part of the Class of 2020 we are running a Jobs Bootcamp on the week commencing 12th April. The event will feature a series of talks and workshops dedicated to helping you to think about what you would like to do in the future, find job opportunities and apply for roles. All sessions will be held virtually via Microsoft Teams and you can find out more information about this event at https://www.staffs.ac.uk/jobhuntbootcamp
There is also a lot of positive news coming from labour market statistics. For example, from the CIPD and Adecco Group survey of 2000 employers, 56% of them stated that they were looking to recruit in the first quarter of 2021. In addition, the healthcare (80%), finance and insurance (65%), education (65%) and information and communications (67%) sectors had great hiring intentions. Also, the Office for National Statistics reported that in the week ending 12th February 2021, the number of UK jobs being advertised online was at 81% of the number advertised in the same week last year. This indicates that now is the perfect time to be looking for your graduate role so get in touch with our wonderful Career Coaches now for guidance on securing your next job!
