I hope all is well! We’ve been busy recapping the results of last month’s newly published recruitment surveys including AGR and High Fliers. Please also take a look at the findings of our very own user survey.
At this time of year, students should start thinking about securing some work experience or an internship before the revision rush begins. We’ve published a wealth of advice on the subject, including a new article that lets students know what rights they have as an intern.
Feel free to pass along any of this to those who may find it useful.
