Sector Themed Weeks and Resources


Our Sector Themed Weeks and Days give you the chance to learn more about working in a particular career sector, such as Finance, Law, Technology, Marketing or the Creative Industries. 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.  

Events include skills workshops, employer-led sessions and the chance to meet Royal Holloway alumni and discover what they do! These are the ideal opportunity for you to evaluate the skills that are most valued by employers in each sector and assess what type of company you'd like to work for after graduation.

You can find all the events listed on the Careers Portal where you can also book your place to avoid disappointment. 

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

Take a look at our Moodle Page for lots more information on specific sectors, as well as recordings of previous sessions. If the sector you are interested in is not listed below, or you simply want a chat about your career journey, why not book a one-to-one appointment with a Careers Consultant?
