I know what you did last summer…
June was an extremely busy month for Recruitment with 3 graduate careers fairs in Leeds, Manchester & Liverpool. I’m always impressed with the organisation and planning that goes into the fairs; the universities careers services do a really good job, we don’t really have to do anything other than turn up and set up. The nice environments and excellent facilities, as well as helpers on the day, mean that we can focus on talking to students about our company and the opportunities we have.
During the summer ITL likes to allow the young friends and family of employees the chance to join us for a few weeks to gain some valuable work experience. This year sees 13 young people join us for summer placements. Some are returnees having worked with us last summer, while a few new faces will experience their first ever working summer. With the chance to earn some money as well as gaining real work experience, it’s a great opportunity for them.
June saw two university students joining us for the summer in our Development Team also. It’s great to be able to give students a chance to put into practice what they have learnt so far and gain valuable experience that will help them stand out from the crowd when it comes to applying for a job after university; plus the Design Engineers gain an extra set of hands for the summer.
Recruitment Tip for Grads
Research the company you are applying for – company websites as well as LinkedIn / Facebook / Twitter hold a wealth of information. You should be able to give a basic overview of what the company does, where it is based etc. You’ll more than likely be asked in an interview what you know about the company!
