Geography students return to class

Each year we welcome former students back to class to talk about life after graduation.

Tom Lee, Matt Gibbs and Hardeep Rai

Tom Lee told students about his experiences of postgraduate study, outlining the advantages and challenges of Masters qualification.  He also explained about his current role as a Trainee Operational Meteorologist with the Met Office, and about the competitive recruitment process for this position.

Matt Gibbs works for a corporate communications consultancy, Radley Yeldar.  He told students about how speculative applications can lead to internships and employment.  Matt explained what his role involves on a day-to-day basis, and talked about the importance of finding a career path that is both enjoyable and challenging.

Hardeep Rai works as a Flood and Coastal Risk Management Officer for the Environment Agency.  He told students about what the role involves, and how his studies at Northampton have helped him in this role.
