Local recruiter shares insights with Kingston graduates

29 July 2010
Kingston University’s Built Environment Employment Bootcamp, which aimed to help graduates and post graduates from the School of Surveying and the School of Architecture secure employment, took place on the 26th – 28th July at the Penrhyn Road Campus in Kingston. Local employers and organisations shared information and advice with the graduates; in addition consultants from Hays, the leading recruiting expert, were on hand to provide careers guidance.

An assessment day, which enabled graduates to take part in mock interviews with employers and expert recruiters from Hays, was held during the event. Those who stood out from the crowd were recommended to key industry employers and may even be offered work experience or a job. Gareth Broadrick, Senior Manager at Hays, also delivered a presentation to the attendees on the state of the local job market.

Gareth Broadrick, Senior Manager at Hays, comments: “It was a fantastic opportunity to meet with the future workforce and a great way for us to showcase local opportunities. The assessment day proved invaluable to those graduates who have limited interview experience as it enabled them to understand the type of questions they will be asked and learn how to respond in an effective way.”
