Helena Sheizon, founder and managing director of Kadmos Consultants, will talk about the existing immigration categories available to international students completing studies before June 2021 and about the Graduate Immigration route which will be launched in the summer 2021. The existing options include Skilled Worker route (currently known as Tier 2) and Tier 5 visa which gives opportunities to gain work experience through internship in a UK-based firm. Full details of the Graduate Immigration Route have not yet been announced, but Helena will give an outline what we know so far.

Oscar Hardy will introduce Libra Education and will talk about capitalising on your academic achievements when applying for jobs. University is full of opportunity and is the main discerning factor when employers look at your application, but how can you maximise your experience to give yourself the best possible chance in the job market? How should you choose a degree? How do you draft a CV? What do you translate your academic skills to the workplace? All these questions and more will be answered to give you the perfect platform for job hunting success.

Miki Querner will cover the best strategy for preparing for a job interview and psychological factors that make or break the interview. Most of us would think of an interview as a fairly unpleasant but unavoidable experience. Miki will share her tips and insights, and you will see that enjoying the interview might be the best way of going about it.
