Adapting In The First Year Of Work – Workshop


An interactive workshop for alumni who have begun a new role or are planning ahead.

When starting a new job, you will need to adapt and do it fast. Employers expect you to hit the ground running, yet it will take you a while before you know the culture well enough to perform at your best.

It’s normal to find the adapting process challenging. A recent survey found:

31% of graduates lacked confidence in their work-readiness
42% wanted more feedback on their performance
45% felt under pressure to work more hours.

This workshop from pioneering business First Year In will share national trends on new job experiences and give you an insight into the core tools you will need to increase your chances of success.

Join this workshop and gain:

  • Insight on how you will need to adapt throughout your career
  • Practical tools to help you in the first year of each new role
  • A chance to explore what makes each role different
  • A clearer sense of the areas you need to focus on
  • Top tips for investing in your network

This 2 hour workshop will be delivered by Samuel Gordon, the Founder and Director of First Year In and an entrepreneur who was shortlisted for the UK Government’s Entrepreneur-In-Residence post in 2013. Sam is passionate and articulate, and a Past President of Oxford University’s flagship graduate community.

The workshop will take place at Regent’s University London on Thursday 5th June, from 14:00 – 16:00.
