Focus on…Job Library
The Job Library is a wealth of resources on Level 3, covering all aspects of employment and learning. So, if you want to know how to create a CV or cover letter, how to approach an interview, what qualifications are required for a career or what funding is available for a course then come and see us. You can also find information on working abroad, psychometric testing including specific job tests and graduate careers.

Coming in September….

Why do people buy things and how much will they pay? These are two of the most important questions entrepreneurs and inventors ask but the answers are fascinatingly simple. Peter Hill, The Library of Birmingham’s “Entrepreneur in Residence” and Dragons’ Den victor will reveal the simple truth behind these two questions in this session.  Find out the one reason why you and everyone else buys most of the products and services you do. Discover the three factors which determine how much anything is sold for. Learn to spot which products and services are likely to be popular and which will probably be left on the shelf. Packed with tips and insights, Peter’s interactive, jargon free and entertaining presentations continually receive the highest of praise and feedback from our audiences and you will be able to book a free one-to-one advice session with him to discuss your own business idea or invention.
