YUSU are preparing for their upcoming Employability Week, ‘We are Golden’. It is due to take place in Week four of this term. Charlie Leyland, YUSU Academic Affairs Officer, described the event as a “myth-buster”, designed to push the University, which currently has a terrible graduate employment rate, to improve its graduate’s employability. Leyland stated that YUSU’s main aims were to push the University careers office to be more effective and to encourage departments to include more employable skills in their core curriculum. “It’s about making sure York graduates have a smooth transition into employment,” continued Leyland.
