Alumni share their tips on how to appear attractive to employers

On 1 November 2018, Siddharth Kohli and Rongtian He attended a career event on campus as guest speakers.

The event titled ‘Making Yourself Attractive to Employers’ was specifically designed to help international students navigate the UK recruitment process.

Siddharth, a TV Producer and Broadcast Journalist for the BBC and Rongtian, Executive Assistant to the Chairman for Aston Villa Football Club, led the evening discussions.

The key topics addressed were around cultural awareness, the importance of developing your skills and increasing your self-awareness.

Alumna, Mengyu Sun (Ashley) volunteered her time from afar. Currently based in China as an International Officer for University of Stirling, Ashley produced a video where she spoke candidly about her experiences in the job market.

Our alumni speakers encouraged students to step out of their comfort zones to achieve their goals.

Siddharth and Ashley both graduated in 2016; Siddharth with an M.Sc in Sport Business and Innovation and Ashley with an M.A in Media and Creative Industries. Rongtian  completed his M.Sc in Sport Management in 2013.

Thank you to our alumni for volunteering their time and expertise to help our international students.
