Who are CoNECT

What we do

UBD CoNECT was set up for students and alumni to help bridge the gap between academic study and the world of employment. It aims to support the goals of each individual as well as the goals of the employers, university and nation by tailoring career focused skills and resources towards the needs of our students and providing experiences and opportunities for self exploration and development.

Below is a list of our main student services:

Resources and Career Information

X

The UBD CoNECT site contains a wide range of information and resources to help you make informed choices about your future career.

Whether it’s understanding your personality strengths, learning how to apply for jobs, searching current vacancies or dealing with stress, we have something to meet everyone’s needs regardless of where you are on your career development journey.

Career and Networking Events

X

Our annual career fair provides a valuable opportunity for current students, graduands and alumni to seek employment, internship opportunities and part-time work while offering opportunities to network with employers and understand the skills and experiences employers require. This will allow students to plan their time through university to meet these requirements through extra-curricular activities.

The fair also offers a series of talks which serve as both educational and motivational on a range of inspiring topics including alumni success stories, life within employment, tips on becoming an entrepreneur and how to make the best use of your time at university.

Our talks will be complemented by our career skills clinics covering vital skills on how to construct a winning CV, how to become a competent interviewee and how to become more entrepreneurial. We consider these skills essential for every student as they will be required in internship and discovery year applications and graduate job placements.

Insight into the Employer Market

X

In our Industry Insight section we share with you information on what employers look for in an employee, what you can do with your degree and the expectations required from some graduate job roles.

By using your career passport to plan your career goal you can involve yourself in ECAs, courses and work experience to gain the knowledge and skills needed to meet an employers expectations.

Employment Opportunities

X

CoNECT is here to help bring graduate jobs, internship opportunities, part-time vacancies and volunteering opportunities from various organisations into one place where you can browse and filter by sector, type and location to match your requirements.

We make it simple for you to apply for a vacancy by simply attaching your CV and cover letter in response to a job posting.

Jobs will be listed by order of newest to oldest postings but do keep an eye on the closing dates for applications as some may only be a couple of weeks or less.
