BLT hosted a great event in the dungeons of BLT Towers this Tuesday. BLT partnered with the London branch of JCI and AIESEC alumni. A panel shared tips and suggestions for coping with the poor jobs market. Some common themes emerged:
- if you are out of work, admit it, don’t hide it
- it’s important to keep up ‘in work’ habits, eg. getting up at the same time and spending normal office hours job searching
- socialize and network as much as you can – everyone you meet has the potential to help you.
The audience had the chance to put networking into practice, quiz the panel on their views, and repair to the pub afterwards to share experiences over a light ale.
There’s a slide pack available on Slideshare for anyone who’d like a copy.
