Bright Futures is a national network of employability societies at over 25 universities across the UK. Run by students, for students and supported by MyKindaFuture, the Bright Futures Societies have been connecting students for over 40 years since the first society was established at Cambridge University in 1976.
We focus on helping our student members maximise their employability skills by giving them insights into organisations enabling them to make informed career choices. We also aim to provide networking events and help our members build key skills and commercial awareness through skill workshops with employers. In order to do this we work with a range of global firms in different industries. A full list of all firms from many sectors is available at the following address: http://www.mykindafuture.com/Companies
We are different from other societies and the career centre as we are a part of a national organisation which gives us access to better resources and a wider range
of corporate contacts. This also gives us a broader view of the graduate market and what employers want. We work with the career centre and other societies to ensure we bring in different companies that are not normally seen around campus from a range of industries. We also hold new fresh and unique events in informal environments. As each society is run by students we know what students want in terms of advice, jobs and events. We also get to determine (with member input) what companies and information you would like at an event. This tailored approach makes us much more appealing to student needs.
Memebership is only £3, and that price includes everything above plus entrance to fun socials that we host across the academic year.
