This week was Sustainability Careers Week at Queen Mary University of London, we hope it was valuable to all of the students that got involved!

If you missed out, you can read about our events and campaigns below…

Blogs

A member of the sustainability team published a blog each day to inform students of their experiences and to emphasise the different pathways into a career in sustainability. If you didn’t get chance to read the blogs yet, why not give them a read now?!

Students were able to speak to stall holders to find out about what opportunities there are available for both paid and voluntary work and how to boost their CV’s to ensure they are in the best possible position to get a job upon graduating.

Sustainability Speed Meet

You might be thinking, what on earth is a speed meet?! Well the best way that we can describe it is like professional speed dating, we even provided dinner! Sustainability professionals visited tables for 10 minutes and students were able to ask them questions in order to gain more information about the types of roles available and also to gain insight into what to do to get a job at the end of their university careers.

We had sustainability professionals from the following organisations;

Briars Associates
Carbon Credentials
Carnstone
QMSU Volunteering
Siemens Rail Automation 
WSP

We are always keen to hold more events to help students gain experience and knowledge to improve their job prospects, so if you are interested in getting involved, let us know at sustainability@qmul.ac.uk.

Make sure you follow our blog, Twitter and Instagram and follow us on Facebook to ensure you don’t miss out on any of our future events!
