Student voice

“Get involved with/in as many things as possible, the more activities and work placements you can take on the better. Graduate employers want you to talk about so many different situations and demonstrate lots of skills, so the earlier you get involved the better. I attended networking evenings, employer presentations, joined the Enactus society, undertook practice interviews, had a placement year and worked as a Student Ambassador all of which helped me build my confidence and presentation skills.”
