In November, Harper Adams saw one of its busiest Careers Fairs to date. With over 130 businesses in attendance, it was a perfect opportunity for students to engage with employers and discover vacation, placement, and postgraduate employment opportunities. The event helps them make connections, growing their confidence and networking skills, as well as highlighting to employers how industry-ready our students are.
“There is no university in the country that produces students better for us than Harper Adams,” said Ian Harrison, HR Manager at Rail-Ability, “We find that Harper Adams students are a year ahead of anyone else we talk to about placements. We’ve got five placement students and a graduate at the moment and they’re all incredibly successful.”
With a variety of students returning to campus with their employers, it was a great chance to find out where our placement students and graduates had found themselves. You can hear what Cerys and Joshua had to say here and read about Jack's experience here.
We're pleased and proud to see the successes our students have achieved, using the knowledge they gained at university to build into real world experience.
