This informal evening of discussion was focused around how those who have completed a graduate scheme can ensure their career continues on that impressive trajectory.
With over 52 attendees with completed graduate schemes from the like of Lloyds, Tesco, Accenture and Capgemini we were thrilled with the mix of new and existing candidates, experience and discussion.
The evening kicked off with speakers from prestigious graduate schemes who Freshminds have placed into fantastic roles including within a FTSE 100 Leadership Scheme and a senior corporate role within a world-leading charity.
Their insight, enthusiasm and personal experiences were fantastic to hear and certainly provided real food for thought for all attendees.
We then heard from Phil Bolton (Less Ordinary Living), our career coaching partner here at Freshminds who offered useful tips including:
Create a 5 year career plan with 1 year goals and continually evaluate
Keep momentum with short term skill and experienced based goals
Take time to analyse your strengths, skills & experience alongside your personal motivations
The evening ended with an informative Q&A session amongst all attendees and a chance to network over a drink and nibbles. We thoroughly enjoyed the event and the positive feedback received since would suggest attendees felt the same!
Select are currently planning another candidate event to take place in the New Year so please do keep your eyes on the website for further details.
