Virtual Events

In response to COVID-19, SOAS Careers is launching a virtual events programme to allow organisations to continue engaging with our students, whilst working within the constraints of the present day. With your permission we aim to record all virtual events and upload them to the student intranet; this allows sessions to reach a larger number of students over the longer term, and will be accessible down the line when your recruitment may have resumed.

Skills Workshops

Using Blackboard Collaborate, this hour-long session is for organisations looking to meaningfully engage with SOAS students and graduates. The aim of the session is to introduce the attendees to the skills that are required for graduate level employment. We have a range of skills we advise that organisations focus on, but we are also open to suggestions. Previous workshops have covered Commercial Awareness, Networking and showcases of projects or functions. 

Recruiter in Residence

Using Blackboard Collaborate, this hour long session is aimed at organisations looking to hire students in the short term, but also those looking to engage with students over a longer period. The session offers the chance to run a brief presentation on opportunities at your organisation, talk about your company culture, and what you look for in applicants. This will be followed by a student Q&A.

Company Clips

This new series offers organisations looking to attract SOAS students the opportunity to film a short promotional video. The video will be uploaded to the SOAS intranet along with a brief organisation profile, where it will be accessible to all students.
