YorkWorks is the careers branch of the Club of PEP. Its main specialty is its careers conferences– evening events where 3-4 attractive graduate employers are invited to come, speak and introduce themselves to the students of York. The firms deliver a presentation followed by a networking session where students can collect promotional material and speak to the company representatives first hand. The concept appears popular, pioneered only last year with 150 students attending the first event and the networking session lasing long after the last company presentation finished!
YorkWorks have also hosted sector specific events, such as LawWorks in June 2011 attended by Clifford Chance, Freshfields, Addleshaw Goddard, BP Law School and College of Law. Occasionally YorkWorks also invites speakers who can inspire and encourage students’ career aspirations. YorkWorks aims to provide a platform for students to meet with experts and industry insiders to learn about the world of work and find out more about a career path that interests them.
YorkWorks collaborate with the University Careers Service, but we primarily tailor our events to the interests of PEP students.
