Yes, University is about your academic studies and having fun, but if you have also come to uni to help get a great job (which we hope you have) – you need to do more.
Joining clubs and societies from first year to final year will help you make friends for life but many, especially the Bright Futures Society, will also help you boost those important employability skills that will shine out on your CV, in your applications and at interview.
The Bright Futures Society is currently in over 50 UK universities, so if there is one on your campus, join it! You won’t regret it! If you don’t, start your own! The society it led by students for students, all supported by a national body (that’s us) and a whole host of employers who invest in the society to dedicate their expertise and effort in helping students develop the core skills they need to get employed. So when it comes to graduation you are well prepared to hit the ground running in any company.
The committee will run a wide range of events that are innovative, informative and often unique, all to help you engage with employers, develop your skills and to find out what’s out there for you in the world of work! If you have anything in mind that you want them to run, just ask! They are always happy to hear from their members, it’s your society after all!
As a National Team we also run big events for you to take part in, especially if you become a committee member. Check out the calendar to see what’s going on across all our universities and what we’re up to nationally too!
Other big things to think about to help you become more employable will be checking out your Careers Service and finding online resources to help you research your options.
