This invaluable experience will not only help your CV stand out; you could even be offered a graduate position by your placement employer – like Jake Evans, who joined Pythagoras Communications Ltd after completing a placement with the specialist development company.
"My placement was an opportunity for me to hone my professional and technical skills in the industry,” he says. “My main responsibilities included developing systems for clients; the wholesale design, development and testing of new products for the company; travelling to client sites and meeting with company leaders; problem solving on the company help desk, and more!”“I gained invaluable industry experience and developed programming, interpersonal and life skills, which I’d never have got through education alone. I also gained contacts in the computing industry and was offered a job by the company at the end of my degree."
