**Global Connections Club**

The Global Connections Club is an informal club where all Warwick students can come together to mix with students from different backgrounds and take part in simple activities, games, or conversations in English.

Each fortnight there are a range of activities facilitated by the World at Warwick Ambassadors. A great chance to mix with students from different backgrounds and to share insights about our diverse cultures! If your first language isn’t English – it’s also a really low-pressure way to practise amongst friends.

**Use skills from Summer Work Experience to stand out**

Work experience, no matter where it was gained and even if it didn’t turn out as expected provides… valuable, transferable skills and knowledge for future job applications!

To make use of what you have gained during the experience, whether for future job or further studies application, you must:
* recognise the knowledge and skills that you have gained
* record them in the STAR or CARE model to differentiate yourself from the competition
* create a good entry for your CV and/or LinkedIn profile.

https://moodle.warwick.ac.uk/enrol/index.php?id=20081 :
Work Experience Learning & Development (L&D) course is designed to help you with all the above and more! Login with Warwick details and click “Enrol me”.

Prefer to talk to us?
Work Experience Drop-in - Tuesdays & Thursdays 2pm-3pm in the Student Opportunity Hub (next to Curiositea Tea Room).


**Did you know?**

Most employers think…
"Experience which helps to develop employability skills and personal qualities does not have to be gained in a specific industry for it to be relevant."

Whether you worked in a bar or completed a finance internship, you would have gained not only an insight of the working world, but also developed skills such as time management and team working.

Such soft skills are easily transferable, supporting your attractiveness for other opportunities e.g. in consultancy, teaching etc. Using work experience for your career plan section will help you think through your experience and create your unique story to convince potential employers and universities (if you are thinking of further studies) of your suitability.

https://moodle.warwick.ac.uk/enrol/index.php?id=20081 :
Login in with your Warwick details and click “Enrol me” to use the CARE model in Work Experience L&D course to build a bank of examples to answer applications and interviews questions.

Prefer a discussion in person? Work Experience Drop-in is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays 2pm-3pm (term-time) in the Student Opportunity Hub (next to Curiositea Tea Room).


**Skills Festival**

 Think about where you want to be in a year’s time

I am truly grateful for the great experience I was given at Sprint… Sprint has helped me so much.
