Armed with countless leaflets, promotional material, pens and sweets, Assurity Consulting set up their stand in the University of Surrey's campus marquee along with many other businesses, big and small. These included Amazon, KPMG and lots of other smaller names, all of whom wanted to come face to face with the freshest future talent.
Throughout the day a great portion of eager students passed through the large marquee set up in the campus, approaching stalls of interest and enquiring about careers and placements. It's safe to say the Assurity Consulting team had their work cut out for them as over 50 students came to our stall, and we were very pleased with the level of interest and quality of candidates we were presented with.
Our Consultant role is notoriously difficult to define but the students engaged and seemed very interested in its potential as an unusual and interesting career. In terms of subject studied we had a total mix of students, from Geology to Politics, reflecting the diverse range of individuals our role attracts.
Finally, we'd like to say a big thank you to the University of Surrey who organised the event so well and enabled the attendees to get on with the task at hand. And the provided lunch was very good too, which certainly added to the day...
