31 January 2015 - 5:20 pm What do employers see in an enterprising person?

As Employability Week is approaching (23rd February – 1st March, more info here) and most of us are concerned about what sort of skills we have and what needs improving, I thought I could take a brief look at enterprise skills.

9 October 2014 - 12:23 pm Intro and 9 interesting facts about me (some are quite creepy!)

Hello! I am Sarunas, the brand new International Enterprise Intern at UoS Enterprise! As the role’s name itself says, I am the one caring about the international community in this unknown and foreign country, making sure that every international mind gets knowledge about what to do with their ideas, how to run a start-up or even establish a business. We all know that a lot of great ideas just stay in lots of people’s heads as an impossible dream, the next steps of implementation are not introduced and the process is more or less unknown and scary. So, I am going to put all my efforts into to solving this problem, encouraging international students to implement and result in a positive change.

Despite the fact that my blogs will mainly be focused on enterprise from an international perspective, I dedicate my first blog post (first blog post EVER – ugh, it’s so scary and exciting) to introducing myself to you, my beloved readers! I have sorted out a few unusual facts about myself: Continue reading “Intro and 9 interesting facts about me (some are quite creepy!)” »

    Hiya! I am Sarunas (yep, sort of a strange name - I'm Lithuanian and proud of it), second year undergraduate student at the EEE department of the University of Sheffield. I'm handling the International Enterprise Intern role at USE, so you can expect to see me blogging about stuff more or less related to international students. I hope you will find my posts both entertaining and useful as I am ready to put myself into blogging quite seriously!
