The Careers and Employability Service offer a fantastic bursary for students. The B-KEW bursary is a great opportunity for students to claim back money on out-of-pocket travel expenses for undertaking unpaid work experience (for the first three weeks or 120 hours of work) or for a training event.
Joshua Green, a first year BSc Economics with Econometrics student, was another of the bursary’s recipients this year which meant he could attend the London Forex show. Joshua has written about his experience, which you can read about here:
This term Grant Thornton ran a very useful workshop for the school on interview skills. An interesting section was on how Grant Thornton have moved away from the traditional competency based questions to strength based questions.
During the spring term FDM ran a very useful assessment centre workshop for the School, which included a fantastic practice exercise involving group presentations. These workshops are a great way to prepare for assessment centres and we look forward to running more in the next academic year.
