Live Q&A: What can undergraduates do to start preparing for their careers?

If you are fresh from nursing your freshers’ week hangover — and perhaps scratching your head trying to figure out why you joined the tiddlywinks society — you might be surprised to find out you could already be on your way to improving your employability.

In a recent Guardian Careers podcast, careers consultant Ruth Wilcock says freshers’ week is a great way to find out more about the opportunities available at university — think everything from joining a club to becoming a student ambassador — and getting involved is an important way of developing the skills employers look for.

In fact, Ruth pointed out how many savvy students are already thinking about life after university — she has seen a rise in visits from first year students who are keen to find out how they can make themselves more appealing on the jobs market when they graduate.

So, if you are already thinking about how you can make the most of university to start preparing for your future career — or if you’d like to know more about what employers want to see from your time spent studying — join our panel of experts in a live Q&A, 19 October at 1pm.
