The Business of International Affairs Conference Series

Many Politics and International Relations students struggle to find meaningful work after graduation. In today’s hyper-competitive job market, gaining the skills to be successful in the workplace for demanding employers can be problematic. In an unsparing job market and amidst growing concern that an International Affairs-related education may not translate into real-world success, students and young professionals are desperate for any potential edge.

Getting into the workplace and making an impact requires a certain skill set and mindset that only comes with experience. 4 years at university no longer guarantees you a career. There is no degree that matches real-world experience.

On this webinar, we’ll delve into the different practical techniques and tactics you can employ to significantly enhance your chances of making yourself a success in a demanding global workplace..

What You’ll Learn:

  • Why a 4 year university degree is not enough to succeed in the competitive arena of the global workplace
  • What top employers really require from graduates and young professionals
  • How to develop the key workplace skills that set you apart from others
