Career blogging all over the world

Well, as far as America that is. Yes, if you look to the right of our blog home page you’ll find an item called the Blogroll. “What is it?” you may ask. Simply put it’s a list of blogs written by other people about all things to do with careers, employability skills and job finding which are as insightful, engaging and informative as we like to think our own blog is. We just thought we’d share them with you as well.

You might in particular want to check out the Widening Participation blog and a recent item on a City University London student who has used their time working for the Widening Participation team to add to their employability skill set whilst really making a difference to a young person’s life. Read Asiya’s story here. And if you’d like to get involved yourself in the activities that the Widening Participation team are running email wpteam@city.ac.uk to find out how it works.
