Investing in Futures:
The pandemic has created a real sense of confusion and uncertainty for students, with question marks raised over the state of the employment market and future career prospects.
To counter this, the Early Careers team at HSBC have created a series of bite-sized virtual events and material, all with the aim of developing student soft skills and support their wellbeing. These sessions all have been designed to give confidence on employment prospects, mythbust common recruitment misconceptions and target key employability skills to offer an advantage when looking for a career.
A full list of these sessions is below.
May - Wellbeing:
At HSBC we recognise the importance of Wellbeing throughout the year, but May holds special focus as the month of celebration for Wellbeing. It’s incredibly important to recognise that ‘Self-care isn’t selfish’. Students naturally put incredible focus on the future, be it looking to further education or to transition into a career, however often it can come at the detriment of their current state of health, body and mind which is just, if not more, important. To try to offer an element of support in the current climate, we have produced the attached materials which contain more information.
