What are you doing with your extra day this leap year? PwC helps make a difference for thousands of students across the UK
University students may cite bleak job prospects as a reason to stay in bed all day, but they canít today because PwC is giving hundreds of students the chance to boost their employability skills on the extra day this leap year.
The leading professional services firm is hosting a series of employability skills sessions and careers advice seminars on university campuses across the UK in a bid to show students whatís on offer, how they can boost their chances of reaching their career goals and be more attractive to recruiters, and get an expert assessment of their skills.
Richard Irwin, PwC head of student recruitment, said:
"Time management is a key employability skill, so we hope students make the most of the extra time afforded to them this leap year and come and meet our recruitment teams. We think itís a great way for students to get an insight into what the big graduate employers are looking for and meet us in an informal way to get advice and feel fully informed about the opportunities we have on offer.Ē
Since opening the majority of its 2012 student vacancies last August, PwC has received an average of 125 applications every day. The firm still has graduate jobs open for the April intake and many more available for the September start. PwC is also inviting applications for over 250 vacancies remaining on its six week summer internship scheme, which take place between June and September.
