Snapshot: Wake me up when September ends

If you thought that Green Day`s “Wake me up when September ends” song was all about love – you are right. But what you did not know is that this American rock band also meant: Keep an eye out for the opening for Snapshot applications, 2013 intake!

   This year, applications can be submitted online from the 23rd September 2013         (start    of    Welcome Week – hooray, hooray) till the 31st October 2013! This gives you a generous 5  weeks to write up the best, and most exciting application form, which will ultimately land      you an interview with us, the Employer Liaison team.

So who are we looking for this year?

Energetic, enthusiastic, interested, passionate, and engaged students who are currently  enrolled in an undergraduate or postgraduate course at City University London. Surely you  can find yourself in this description!

What should you expect during the selection process?

If you are successful at the interview stage and we are absolutely charmed by you, we will invite you to attend a training & assessment day in December – unfortunately, this will take place on City campus, and NOT at Winder Wonderland, but we do apologize for any inconvenience in advance! During this 2 hour session, we will tell you more about us, and expect you to show us what you are capable of! We don’t want to reveal all our secrets just yet, but you will participate in a variety of individual and group exercises.
