Green Mary careers week
Green Mary Careers week provides students an opportunity to learn more about job opportunities in the environmental sector. Students can meet a variety of professionals working within the sector. Where possible, we involve Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) alumni to allow students to see how people from the same university have been able to progress their career.
The Green Mary Careers and Volunteering Fair invites organisations in the environmental sector, membership bodies and volunteering groups on site to talk to students about how they can continue to build their CV and gain experience. The careers speed meet allows students to have more in-depth conversations one-on-one with those working in the sector.
The Sustainability team also promote and engage with students at QMUL and beyond through blogs and social media posts. This year they ran a blog series highlighting what experience the team had and how they got to their current positions, offering helpful hints and tips.
