Ridge to host employability workshops for ambitious candidates

11 January 2022

On Thursday 24th March 2022, we are hosting two interactive workshops designed to improve candidates' prospects on the job market.

Following the success of our employability workshop in 2021, we will be hosting two sessions offering expert advice and guidance on how to land a fulfilling career in property and construction.

Running virtually via Microsoft Teams, the sessions will cover a range of topics and engaging workshops:

  • Gather tips, insight and invaluable experience from our hiring team and experts
  • How to make your application stand out and what employers look for
  • How to prepare for interviews
  • Introduction to internships, placements and graduate positions
  • CV clinic – how to create and efficiently tailor your CV for each job application. Please bring along a copy of your CV to the workshop and anonymise it so that we can show some examples to the group
  • Try your skills in a hands-on interview – trial interviews in breakout rooms with an expert relevant to the discipline you are interested in
