Skills development programme

Each year we invite organisations that recruit our students to assist with the delivery of our Skills Development Programme.

These events offer an opportunity to make a real difference to the employability and development of students and graduates from Queen Mary University of London, and excellent means of informally raising your organisation's profile on campus.

Recruiters are invited to sit on panels, and run workshops involving practical case studies.

These events, in most cases, involve collaboration with another organisation which is designed to give the students a wider experience of different business cultures.

Recruiters do not pay to take part, but we require that all sessions are interactive and non-promotional.

Topics for 2016-2017 are:

  • CVs & Applications – Panel
  • Commercial Awareness – Panel
  • Assessment Centres/Group Exercises – Workshop
  • Interview Skills – Workshop
  • Networking Techniques – Workshop
  • Presenting, Pitching & Influencing – Workshop

We are also open to discussion on topics you think might be of use to our students.


Mock Interviews

We also look for organisations throughout the academic year to hold Mock Interviews with our students and recent graduates.

Mock Interviews are one to one sessions lasting c.30 minutes each. You will interview the student using questions similar to those used in your recruitment process, and provide verbal feedback to the student.

To assist with your preparation students will submit in advance their CV so you can familiarise yourself with their background.

There is no charge for the events listed on this page as you are helping educate our students in core employability skills - although we do welcome organisations who may wish to sponsor our skills programme.

If you would like to be involved please contact careers-events@qmul.ac.uk, or telephone 020 7882 6922 for further details.
