Employer Placement event : September 2017

We were delighted to welcome 10 employers to the School of Management's Year in Business event : Ascot Wealth Management, Costco, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, EY, GE, IBM, PwC, SAP, Toyota and 3M.

Many of our 1st and 2nd year Management Year in Business students attended the evening and were able to speak to representatives from the different companies about their placement schemes. Current YIBs Alvaro and Ropa were on the Ascot Wealth Management stand, while Catherine and Hannah represented SAP and Georgia was on the Toyota stand. We were also fortunate that many other YIBs who have also been out on placement made themselves available to talk informally to the 1st and 2nd years.

The 2nd year YIBs also attended an information workshop where they heard about the steps required to embark on their placement search and the support available from Royal Holloway's Placement team and the Careers' Service. The Careers and Employability moodle page has considerable resources to help students prepare for CVs/ Cover Letters/ Interview skills/ Assessment centres/ Psychometric tests. The 2nd year YIBs are also fortunate to be able to book 1:1 guidance sessions with Careers on Tuesdays (12 - 4pm) and Thursdays (12 - 3pm)

The YIBs also heard from YIBs Mary (HBO); Sharon (Menzies LLP) and Becky (Porsche) about their placements and the recommendations they offered placement students:
