After graduation, a holiday and a short stint studying abroad, it was about time I got a job.
I quickly fell into a role as a Sales Administrator through a friend of a friend. I knew it wouldn’t be permanent, but I also knew after about a month, that I disliked everything about it. I saw my friends succeeding in their graduate schemes and moving to big cities and felt completely left behind. After six months of feeling sorry for myself, my dad gave me some valuable advice; ‘No one can get you out of this job but you.’
And so began the search!
The Second Successful Essex Hackathon!
In collaboration with Major League Hacking (MLH) and Essex Startups the University of Essex hosted their second Hackathon in 2 years.
It’s that time of year, the excitement of Christmas is over and you finally have to start thinking about life after Uni!
As a recent Essex graduate, I was in the same situation frantically trying to find myself a job. One day I stumbled across the Mitie Graduate Scheme and after several forms and psychometric tests, an online video interview and an assessment centre I was offered a job!
