National Careers Service Careers Roadshow

Queen Square, Wolverhampton - Aug 20th, 10.30-4:30

This summer, the National Careers Service Careers Roadshow is touring the country with careers workshops, tools and resources to help you find the right job for you, build a winning CV and impress at interviews.

The workshops are open to anyone looking to get a headstart in their job hunt, whether you have just received your exam results, are rethinking your options following redundancy, a parent returning to work, or seeking a fresh challenge in your career. 

Learn from top careers experts from National Careers Service, with proven experience in getting people into work and building job confidence.

Workshops are available on a range of topics - from identifying the right job for you to what to write (and not to write) on a CV. If you've ever been stumped by a difficult question at an interview (and who hasn't?), the intensive interview workshop could be right up your street.

In addition to the training workshops, you will also have the opportunity to gain exposure to employers offering jobs in your area, and gain valuable feedback on what local employers are looking for. Previous roadshows have helped hundreds of people into work - you could be next!

With careers specialists and employers in attendance, the Roadshow promises to be an exciting opportunity to learn, share experiences and get questions that you felt afraid to ask answered!

Places are filling up fast, so book now for a workshop near you! Upon booking, you will receive a confirmation email - please bring a copy of this with you on the day.
