When it comes to recruiting the best graduates, employers look for much more than just good academics. They want rounded individuals; those who have immersed themselves in university life and taken positions of responsibility, developed leadership skills, shown initiative, etc.

And this will involve students joining clubs and societies, volunteering, gaining work experience and developing the skills required to successfully navigate recruitment processes. However, if you lack confidence, combined with the added challenge of managing your disability, getting involved can seem challenging, if not impossible.

Join this free webinar by Helen Cooke, leading expert in disability and student recruitment and Founder of MyPlus Students’ Club, who will take you through 5 ways to develop your employability skills whilst at university.

This webinar will challenge you to:

Develop your understanding of what employers are looking for
Question your assumptions of what is possible
Try new things
Gain work experience; paid or otherwise
Build your professional network
