Hello there and welcome to January’s Blog Post from the Careers Centre! We have plenty of news for you and loads of important dates for your diary so read on…
Summer Camp Recruitment Fairs
With each new year comes new opportunities to work abroad during the summer, and this year is no different.
Camp Leaders have their fair on Saturday 22nd January
Camp America have their fair on Thursday 27th January
Whether you have started your application or not, get yourself along to the recruitment days for the best chance at securing your place at a summer camp. I went without any knowledge of them at all, just to get some information and I walked out 5 hours later with a place. So if you are yet to apply, half way through, or waiting ot be placed get yourself down there for the chance to meet the directors of the camps you could be working for this summer!
