Graduates return to the University to talk to students about careers

This week we welcomed two recent graduates back to the University to talk to our third year Geography and Environmental Science students about life after University.  Tommy Fojut spoke about his current role as a Graduate Transport Planner.  He spoke about what the role involves, what the application process was like, and about the importance of getting relevant work experience.  Matt Gibbs outlined how he had used speculative applications to gain an internship in the marketing sector.  He explained how this internship had led to an opportunity for a paid position, and described his current role.  Both Tommy and Matt answered questions from the students and gave tips on what they could do now to enhance their employability.
