Westminster Working Cultures has launched WWC Professional, a series of virtual events aimed at enhancing the employability of international students and graduates.
Westminster Working Cultures (WWC) Professional offers international students and recent graduates a unique opportunity to learn virtually about the professional landscape, career opportunities and working life in the global labour market and, in particular, that of their home country.
The upcoming virtual events will give attendees a chance to learn from a wide range of influential and successful Westminster alumni who left the UK after graduating to transition back and establish themselves professionally in their home countries. The events will explore ways to showcase a degree from the University of Westminster in international settings, CV advice and interview tips, local sector specific information and how to deal with reverse culture shock.
The event series is launching with its first WWC Professional – Career Insights: India, on Wednesday 25 November 2020. Events will be held virtually and give attendees the opportunity to hear from a panel of speakers and then participate in ‘breakout rooms’ for more in-depth discussions with each speaker.

These events are free to attend, but you must register your place in advance. An event link will be sent shortly before the event begins.
This programme has been generously funded by the Quintin Hogg Trust and is run by the Westminster Working Cultures team based in the University’s Alumni Relations Office.
