One of the biggest worries for students is what they are going to do once they graduate. You may wish to get a job and perhaps you’ve considered working in a start up. Not everyone knows exactly what it takes to work in a start up which is why we’ve invited a fantastic panel to tell you what is required to land your feet at your dream start up role.
The panel will be covering:
- What experience & skills you need to apply
- A day in the life of working in a start up
- Top tips for applying
