We held a Careers and Internships event last year. It went really well so we thought we'd do it again. So we did. And it went really well again. We had loads of companies show up and present, and then they manned stands and took business cards (that we had rather thoughtfully provided) from our students.
One thing that surprised and pleased me was the number of companies in the area doing world beating stuff. And one company mentioned the awesome news that Hull was one of the top ten cities singled out in a recent Tech City UK report. You can find the report here. Skip to pages 45 and 46 for the good stuff.
It was great to see the students and employers engaging again. Many companies had brought Hull University graduates with them as part of their teams, and there was something of a reunion flavour to the event, which was really nice. And, of course, we'll run it again next year.
If you're a Hull student, I wrote a little executive summary about the event. Send me an email and I'll let you have a copy.
