Sign-up to one of our Employability Skills workshops to find out how City Library can support your personal development and transition into the workplace. 

1. Researching future employers using library resources

When applying for jobs you’ll need to be able to demonstrate to future employers that you keep up to date with news and current affairs in your chosen field of work. You’ll also need to show that you’ve researched thoroughly the organisation or company which you are hoping to work for.

In this practical workshop we’ll look at a number of resources available via the library that can support this research and help you get the job you want.

In this workshop we’ll cover:

  • How to search the international news database Nexis UK to find company, industry and regional news
  • How to find company information by searching financial databases such as Business Source Complete, Marketline and IBISWorld



2. Your digital footprint and keeping your finger on the pulse

This session will provide tips on how to present yourself online to potential employers and using social media to your advantage.

In this workshop we’ll…

  • Discuss the implications of your ‘digital footprint’
  • Explore the benefits of developing your online presence
  • Highlight the role of social media in developing an online identity
  • Show the range of digital tools and organisations which can support your research
