Sector-focused events


The Careers & Employability Service offers careers guidance, no matter where you are on your career journey, starting from ‘I haven’t decided what I want to do yet’ (Evaluate) and ‘I have some ideas what I want to do’ (Explore) through to ‘I know what I want to do’ (Enact).

Whether you’re at the ‘Evaluate’, ‘Explore’ or 'Enact’ stage of your career journey, sector-themed events / weeks give you the chance to learn more about working in a particular career sector e.g. business, finance, law or charity.  Remember, for the majority of these sectors you aren't required to be following a specific degree, as they all have a wide range of roles that require different skill sets.  

Our events include beginner's guide sessions, workshops, employer-led sessions and the chance to meet Royal Holloway alumni and discover what they've been up to since graduation. These are the ideal opportunity for you to evaluate the skills that are valued by employers and assess what type of company you'd like to work in after graduation.

Check out our useful employer and alumni events Help Sheet for tips on how to make the most of these activities.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for or simply want a chat about your career journey, why not book a one-to-one appointment with a Careers Consultant online or at the Careers & Employability Service in the Davison building?
