A couple of weeks ago we held our first full online showcase week and it’s safe to safe that it went down well!
The week was designed to replicate a careers fair and gave employers in the professional services space the opportunity to engage with members of the network, answer any questions, and most importantly, promote the brand.
Companies who got involved in the week include the likes of EY, Vodafone, Grant Thornton, Capgemini, Experian and MThree, all of whom had some great interest from network members.
Being online it gave hiring teams the chance to engage with candidates from a variety of different backgrounds, universities and degree courses and best of all, they didn’t even have to leave the office to do so.
One network member, Tom Stanley, said “Some of the employers don’t come to my university so it was a great opportunity to speak with these. I decided to apply for a couple of the positions off the back of the week and have already been successful in getting some interviews setup.”
Being our first full showcase week we have had lots of ideas as to how we can make them even better going forward and we are excited to start planning the next. Thank you to everyone who got involved.
Update: Tom Stanley went on to secure a role as a Tax Advisor with EY from the showcase week with numerous network members also securing roles.
If you’d be keen to discuss involvement in a future showcase week, please get in touch with a member of the team.
