On Friday 23rd June our students gathered at the shiny new premises of one of the worldâ€™s most famous companies to spend a day discovering for themselves what it is like to work at the cutting edge of business. KPMG employ 10,000 people across the globe and have recently moved into their Manchester offices in the iconic location of St Peterâ€™s Square ,this is a statement of their intention to grow the financial sector in the North West . They are keen to recruit the very brightest young minds in the region and with this in mind Connell students were one of the first to answer their invitation.
Students were put through their paces with a range of workshops from studying business etiquette and interview skills to how to produce a winning C.V . Â KPMG associates were generous with their time and personal tips for the top. Connell students acquitted themselves handsomely when asked to prepare and deliver presentations on given topics relevant to the changing economy and global challenges .
It was an inspiring day and I would encourage all students to sign up for Career Ready next year.
