A new series of events for international students starting 24th April: Professional Global Passport

13/04/2012

 

Employability is about more than getting a job – your skills, attributes and knowledge all contribute to employability. The Professional Global Passport is a mini portfolio for you to recognise the value of your attributes and skills, enabling you to promote these to prospective employers. After attending these employability related events and workshops you will be able to record these using the ‘Professional Global Passport’ (FREE from ISSS).

We have four upcoming sessions tailored for GCU international students. These sessions will be hosted by Diane Edmonds from GCU Careers Service, and the final session will consist of a workshop delivered by John Devlin from Scottish Government Relocation Advisory Service, and he will discuss your visa options for working in the UK after your studies.  This will take into account the recent closure of Post Study Work and the switching option from Tier 4 to Tier 2.
