I hope that you all appreciate the value of doing an industrial placement but I want to share with you the following from Josh who is currently on placement at Coast to Capital.
‘I’m doing well, the placement’s still great, I get to do a bit of everything to fill gaps as needed. It’s a nice role with a lot of autonomy, it’s what you make it really.
For example, since I didn’t have a placement until September I started learning Russian over last summer. My role here has taken on a focus on international trade and as luck would have it I’m now in talks with a company from Russia about them maybe coming to the area, and I’ll be doing a Skype call with them tomorrow. I’m also getting funded by Coast to Capital to go to an event by the Russo-British Chamber of Commerce in London soon, where I’ll get to introduce both Coast to Capital and myself to even more of these businesses.
Point being for a student who wants a dynamic role in a small, open organization, this one is pretty awesome! I can’t think of anyone here I would consider unapproachable’.
Well done, Josh!
Josh is doing the role that I emailed about yesterday – as a Service Pillar Support Assistant. The role is open till the 30th May. Get applying, please!
