Abstract

This virtual poster presentation will highlight how the Aberdeen Employability Boost Award programme has impacted on student employability skills at the University of Aberdeen. The Employability Boost Awards were created as a direct response to the Covid-19 lockdown in May 2020. Since then the content from that inaugural four-week event has been used to create 'always on' course content as well as further Employability Boost events, with the latest being completed in October 2020. Combined, these events have attracted over 1,100 students, with content being delivered through live career e-bites, subject-specific careers advice sessions and webinars run by external speakers.
