Work experience at the University of Leeds | Work placements and year in industry


Leeds played a really
big part in helping me get my undergraduate
placement year, and they supported me
through the process not only in securing the placement but
also whilst I was on placement. At IBM, I was specialising in
digital strategy consulting. We were helping companies to
grow through the strategic use of technology. Sometimes I go to
client sites, so I was working at Wimbledon for two
weeks over the championships, talking to potential IBM clients
and members of the public. This was really important
for me as a step in my career of having this responsibility. I have been offered a place
in the IBM Graduate Programme. It means that I can focus
on my studies this year and look forward to joining a
job I really enjoy pursuing. Being able to use the skills
that I’ve learned at university at a global organisation
has been really rewarding. It’s helped me to
grow professionally and personally, and
it’s also set me up for the rest of my career.
