Have you been on a work experience placement or internship? Are you currently looking for work? We are currently looking for students and graduates of the university who are interested in in writing for our blog about their experiences in the work place.
If you’ve found work, whether it is part-time, full time or an internship, we want to hear about it. Whether your experiences are good or bad, your stories can help inform other students and graduates what working life can be like. It can be really helpful to hear from other students who are in the same position and from recent graduates who now work full time or who are still looking for work. It is also a fantastic way for you to practise your non-academic writing skills.
We want you to be honest, but please do not focus on negative experiences with a particular company, we don’t want to offend anyone. Instead, tell us how it impacted you and what you learnt from it. Would you recommend it? Do you think it has benefited your future employability? But don’t try to give advice about what students should be doing. These blogs need to be personal, we want to hear your story and how it affected you.
Please keep posts under 800 words (about a side of A4) and spell check it before you submit it.
Try to include a picture with your post, but make sure that it isn’t copyrighted. If you are unsure, leave it out and allow us to choose an image or only include a photo you have taken yourself.
To state your interest, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be in touch with details on how to submit your stories.
We look forward to hearing about your experiences soon!
