Our key aims
- To provide students with opportunities to improve their business, networking and employability skills through careers events and skills workshops.
- To promote and improve international integration not only within the society or LUBS but the university as a whole.
- To ensure students make the most of their university experience and love their time at Leeds!
We're going to be working with Ernst & Young which is our main sponsor and other accounting, business and finance firms to organise events that will help you learn about great opportunities for summer internships, year placements or graduate jobs.
All our events can be added to your CV and will provide you with experiences to talk about in interviews to demonstrate the key competencies (Teamwork, Leadership, Commercial Awareness etc...) that employees look for. There's a wide range of internships available, and we have employees from those companies that offer them, coming in to give you an exclusive insight into what it take to land the internships, and tips on how to get through the difficult recruitment process.
One of our main events for this year is the World Food Networking Lunch. Last years we invited professionals from the biggest companies (EY, HSBC, Deloitte, Investec, Marsh, Enterprise rent-a-car, Ernst and Young, PricewaterhouseCoopers, KPMG and many more!) to come down and chat with our members in a laid back environment. You'll get free food and drinks and have the exclusive opportunity to ask them any questions that you may have. They have been through the difficult recruitment process and they are able to share with our members their tips for success! So join now to get into this year's World Food Networking Lunch and a number of other great and useful events:
- Professional Qualifications Event
- Interesting Presentations
If you are preparing for your upcoming internship applications and you are afraid of the Online Reasoning Tests, as a member of FABSoc you will not fear anymore! We got you covered with completely free access to our very own Society Online Tests Package which includes 26 Numerical Reasoning Tests, 12 Inductive Reasoning, 17 Verbal Reasoning and many many more.
