BLOG: Careers Blog!
In this blog I will give you some examples of Business Angels, a website to sign up to and a reminder about the CV workshop taking place on Saturday 3rd November!
Jenny Ball – HR Manager at Ford Motor Company – graduated in 1995 with a History degree
She is happy to talk to anyone interested in a career in HR and can also provide a more general overview of anyone looking to work in the Automotive industry.
Michael Cannon – Senior Scientist at Proctor and Gamble – graduated in 2002 with a Chemistry degree and also has a PGCE qualification
Can talk to people about applying for internships with P&G as well as share his experience of the company.
Chris Norman – Trainee Solicitor at Clifford Chance – graduated in 2011 with a law degree
Has undertaken internships at Clifford Chance and Hogan Lovells as well as successfully being invited for interview at several magical circle firms. He is therefore a great person to talk to about any application/interview related issues. He was also Law Society President and careers officer so has lots of contacts.
A reminder that a great way of keeping on top of job/internship application deadlines is by signing up to www.Top100GraduateEmployers.com
Finally, please remember that the CV and careers workshop is on Saturday 3 November from 10am until 4pm in the Pennington Suite. Please join the Facebook group and if you want a one to one session and haven’t yet sent me your CV then there may still be a chance as there are a few spaces left. So send me your CV asap if you want any guidance.
Have a great week!
