Careers top tip of the week!
Why do you need work experience?
Let's take an example...

Which one will get the job?
Employers look for:
- Work experience - Transferable skills - Candidates who can talk about their experiences and what they've learnt. - A good degree
Over 50% of Times Top 100 employers say candidates with no previous work experience have "little to no chance" of receiving a job offer on their graduate scheme. Don't let yourself be at a disadvantage. #YouNeedWorkExperience
