Snapshot Scheme: Class of 2014
For you stats-lovers out there, here are some nice figures from this year`s selection process for the Snapshot Scheme:
v This Autumn term, we`ve received 270 online applications from students
v We`ve held 99 interviews & met 99 great potential candidates
v We`ve invited 53 students to attend our final stage of assessment: a Training & Assessment session
v Annnnnd, finally… we`ve offered 38 new places on the Scheme 2013/2014
Why are students applying for the Snapshot Scheme? Here is some feedback from our previous Snapshotters:
“I really enjoyed the overall experience, my guide and his colleagues were really friendly and answered all the questions we had and I enjoyed hearing about their past experiences in other jobs and how they all got to where they are today. This experience has definitely reaffirmed my choice of the industry.” (Law student)
“What differentiates the scheme from Career Fairs and Employer Talks is you can gain workplace insight, and an understanding of day-to-day responsibilities. It offers an up-to-date picture of the current graduate market, as well as commercial awareness and industry knowledge. Not only is it an important addition to my CV, but Snapshot professionals were also impressed I took time out to investigate their industry, which was encouraging.” (Mathematics student)
If you haven`t secured a place on Snapshot: Insight into Industry this year, don`t despair! There are several other ways you can get the exposure you need to the industries you are interested in.
