How do you intend on supporting employability opportunities a BU?

 “My idea is that students come with the idea of what skills they believe they lack… Then shared with the development program. So that when they go on to their placement or post-graduate work in the workplace they have that confidence to show what they are capable of.”

  • Charity Omoduemuke

Hello, my name is Akporoghene Charity Omoduemuke. I’m a level 5 business and management student. I decided to run for this post because I believe that students need to develop skills and enhance their experiences outside their course of study; I believe this is valuable to them and further enhance their employability when applying for jobs both in their placement year and after graduating from university. 

To achieve this goal:

Organizing free employability workshops at BU - I will make sure that these events are displayed on Brightspace and the BU website and all available social media handles.

How would you promote employability workshops further?

“I’m going to make sure that students are aware of these opportunities in the year. So, I’m going to talk to students constantly about what peaks their interest.”

“Your vote is your VOICE, your vote is important for the excellent future of SUBU and Bournemouth University.

“My name is Charity. Give me the opportunity to serve. ”
