What our students say

Don't just take our word for it, here's what some of our past students have to say

 I just received my summer internship placement letter and will start working at a video streaming company, Streaming Tank, in central London. Thanks to the team at Grad Careers and Kate for organising this for me. To have Accounting work experience in London will be so useful for me in the future when I apply for jobs.

Shiau Shan Lee

Final year Accounting student, The University of Manchester

    My CV wasn't that good as I did not have any work experience in the UK. I spoke to Kate about wanting an internship and 3 weeks later I received my placement letter, it was very quick. I sent her my CV and had a 30 minute interview with the manager at a statistical data company in London and I was offered the internship. I'm so relieved!
