17th May 2017 | By Maureen Thompson, CEIAG Careers Advisor/Librarian

As part of our ongoing “Career Ready Programme”, a group of L6/U6 students had the opportunity to attend an insight day at Accenture, Manchester Airport. ‘The Times Top 100’ employer, delivered a workshop exploring the different parts of their global business from strategy and consulting, to digital technology and operational services. Our students thoroughly enjoyed the day and were commended on their extensive Business knowledge! They were keen to share their positive comments…

“I really enjoyed the Accenture workshop event as we able to work on real-life case studies. This enabled me to gain an actual awareness of what the company roles involved, what type of knowledge they are looking for, and what future employers will expect of me. This experience has motivated me to improve on certain skills, has raised awareness of my strengths and weaknesses, and will help me to achieve my future goals.” Liyi Zhen – U6 Student

“The Accenture workshop was extremely insightful and helped me to gain more knowledge on what to expect when applying for a job in a large global company. This knowledge included interview preparation tips, what to expect when completing psychometric tests, and the format of interviews at assessment centres. The event proved to be extremely useful for students studying both ‘A’ levels and BTEC qualifications.” Larna Houston – U6 Student
