The students also have to prepare 10 STAR examples as part of their Academic Assessment and so this exercise has helped them to fine tune one such example.
We also appreciated the time these Year in Business students took in talking to current Royal Holloway 2nd year Year in Business students over tea.
For those 2nd years who have found placements it was great to hear about how the students were getting on in companies such as IBM, GE, Grant Thornton, Enteprise Rent a Car, GSK and Lucidity London.
Many 2nd years who have not currently secured placements said they felt reassured to hear that some of these placement student had not secured their positions until May/ June of the previous year.

Unfortunately those students currently on placement abroad were not able to join us. We currently have a placement student working for J&J in Shanghai and another working for Vines and Terroirs in Hong Kong.We use skype / phone calls and email to connect with these students.
