Hi Everyone! As you may have read here, this past June, I took part in the Pathways to Marketing Scheme run by the University of Exeter’s CareerZone. After a marvellous end to a fun, exciting, and thorough training week, I was ready to dive head first into my placement as Marketing Assistant at 3WhiteHats.
Hi everyone! Hope you all are enjoying a lovely summer so far! This past June I took part in the Pathways to Marketing Programme up in Streatham Campus. This 2-week employability-driven scheme is run by the CareerZone, our inter-Uni employability service, and is a phenomenal way to gain some valuable training from industry experts in the first week, and CV-worthy paid placements in the following.
Hi there, I’m Nicola! I’m currently in my second year studying Management with Marketing with Industrial Experience. This summer, I will start my placement year, which is incredibly exciting! To secure a placement or internship (including summer internships), most companies have an application process that includes a job application form, CV and Cover Letters, psychometric tests, interviews, and finally an assessment centre. The aim of this blog post is to share my experiences with interviews and assessment centres, sharing some tips that I have found useful.
Last week’s theme on our @exeterunilife Instagram account was WORKING FOR THE UNI. I asked students who work for the University or the Guild to talk about their experiences and shared their stories on Instagram. In case you missed it, here are the highlights of the week along with some general information about working on campus. (more…)
I worked in Italy, as a Communications and Marketing Assistant at an NGO. The experience wasn’t easy and I still think that studying is more enjoyable. But no one promised me that something would be easy. I’ve significantly developed myself as a professional and gained some important skills, such as flexibility, teamwork, the ability to plan and use my initiative. Also, because I was abroad, I’ve become more culturally adaptable, learnt to communicate effectively with people from different backgrounds. Placement is a lot of fun as well – it gives you the opportunity to travel and to meet new people!

Dear UCAS applicants,
How’s it going? I have to admit that I’ve erased most of my UCAS time from my mind. It was NOT FUN. Ultimately, it just becomes a short period of time in your memories. All you can really do is your best, submit and then drop it all out of your mind. There is a point where it’s out of your hands and that’s the point where (for most of you) this is your final year, and you need to focus on your work.
However, there is a bit of advice I’d like to give you.
