  • Time: 5pm
  • Location: QG22
  • More info: https://www.facebook.com/events/1659468500978429/ On Thursday we have the lovely Lotta Mikkonen (attol) coming in to talk to us about interview techniques and 3 & 4 project presentation. This talk will be great for everybody especially those of you with intra interviews and projects coming up. You should definitely come along as she’ll be passing on some invaluable tips on acing those interviews!

We’ll also be heading out for Halloween drinks afterwards at the Slipper! See below.

Halloween Drinks!

  • Date: Thursday 29/10/15
  • Time: 6.30pm
  • Location: The Slipper The only thing better than practising interview techniques is practising them under the influence of alcohol! After Lotta’s talk on Thursday, we’ll be heading to The Slipper for some Halloween drinks and festive tomfoolery. Fancy dress is optional, but warmly welcomed!

Don’t forget to take a peek at our social media pages and our calendar to end all calendars:

All the best from myself & the Rb Committee,
