The University of Ulster is holding a free Graduate Bootcamp next month to help graduates boost their employability skills and increase their chances of finding work.

It’s being delivered by the Career Development Centre (CDC) in association with recruitment specialists from Google Ireland and the Royal Navy.

Participants will learn how to enhance their potential in the increasingly competitive graduate labour market.

They will also be given the opportunity to gain greater knowledge in areas such as skills development, career branding, writing CVs – and how to shine at interviews.

The two-day event – taking place at the Belfast campus on February 14 and 15 from 10am until 3.30pm – is designed to be both informative and interactive and individual career coaching will also be available.

Shauna McCloy, Career Development Manager at the University of Ulster said: “Although the graduate labour market is slowly improving it is still very competitive in many sectors.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for graduates to receive guidance about how to enter the job market, to talk to careers professionals and to meet other graduates in a similar situation.”

The University is offering 40 places and booking is now available at This event is open to applicants who have not yet secured themselves a graduate level position.
