Case study: Hannah Yarr - BA (Hons) International Business, Year 4

"Get involved with as many Accelerate workshops as possible, the more activities and work placements you can take on the better. I attended networking evenings, employer presentations, undertook practice interviews and worked as a Student Ambassador all of which were provided by the Careers & Employability Service. All these activities have helped build my confidence and improved my presentation skills."

Case study: Ben Hardwick - BSc (Hons) Psychology final year student

"The Get Grad Job Ready workshops were extremely helpful to prepare me for interviews and assessment centres with graduate employers. I was able to develop key skills and practice interview questions before they happened so I could feel more confident and well prepared. I was also able to get a professional LinkedIn headshot and develop my profile to boost my professional appearance online. With this help I was able to perform well and I have been offered a job with Babcock International! I couldn’t have done it without the help of the workshops and would encourage others to make the most of them!"
