Previous Student Experience
It had a positive impact on getting a Job within HR. The modules we did, in particular, interviewing is something I use all the time when we're looking to recruit. It also built on knowledge and allowed the transfer of skills from theory into practice. It gave me a confidence somewhere along the line to be able to talk about things I wouldn't have been able to with people from other areas of the business that we covered in modules.Brenda Roberts
