I read somewhere that a poster must convey its message with immediacy and purpose, because people on the street are often in a hurry. The “in a hurry” part is certainly true about City students! That`s why we were delighted to receive an astonishing number of 241 applications for the Scheme (testimony to the good old promotional posters and flyers that have taken over the main campus in the past few weeks)!
But for those of you who have not visited Northampton Square in a while, or perhaps, have forgotten the password to your University email account and did not see the emails about it (no judgement there, I know what it is like), here is some information about what the Snapshot: Your Insight into Industry Scheme is all about!
Although a predecessor of the Work Shadowing Scheme ran last year, Snapshot was designed as a more flexible programme that will allow students to get in touch with employers, and learn more about their industry of choice. Pretty cool, right? And that`s not all! With a range of opportunities such as meetings at the employer`s office, meetings with the employer at City, and even work shadowing of a industry professional, students will get a real feel of what “life as a…” is really like.
So if you have are not one of the lucky students who will get to experience this Scheme this Spring, keep an eye out for it to re-open in the autumn term! Or … just check the Careers posters and your University emails more often.
With love, from the Employer Liaison corner – Victoria.
