tom brawleyI'm writing to let you know I got the summer placement offer from BP, just had the call there from them, feeling ecstatic!! 

Thank you so much for all your advice, it really helped me prepare, feel relaxed and perform at my best on the day! I cannot put into words how much I appreciated it, your insight was so invaluable!

Thank you also for all the fantastic work you do with Bright Futures, as without it, and leading to my involvement in the Society, my personal development wouldn't be at the level it is today!

Hope you have a great day! Thank you so much again!


P.S. This is also first-hand evidence that the re-structuring of the National Team was a fantastic decision and giving committee's a personal mentor really works in helping them secure a job, as proven with me!!

Thank you to Bright Futures who helped develop my skills and gave me powerful examples that I have used at all stages of my graduate applications to demonstrate the skills & competencies the employers wanted to see; skills which I still continue to develop.

I am lucky enough to have been successful in gaining a paid summer internship, before starting on the Boots Graduate Scheme in September.
