New for Spring term: online Q and A with the Careers team

For Spring term we are piloting a new way for you to get help from us – an online Careers Q&A on the topics we get asked about most.  The sessions will run on alternate Tuesdays between 11.00am and 1.00pm – you can find a full list of dates and topics below.

First up (Tuesday 17 January, Week 2) is a session on the York Award (2017) for those graduating this summer. It will be hosted by Jo Gee our York Award Officer and Irena Zientek our Information Manager. Between them they know everything there is to know about the York Award and will be able to answer any question you have to make sure you can submit a strong application before the 27 January application deadline.

How to take part

Just find the session on our events page or in Careers Gateway and follow the instructions to log into the platform. Usually you can “drop in” any time during the 2 hour session to ask any questions you have on the topic of the week.

List of topics

  • Week 2 (Tuesday 17 January):  York Award application for 2017 graduates
  • Week 4 (Tuesday 31 January):  Internships and work experience
  • Week 6 (14 February): Finalists Q&A
