“The Insight Day was worth the 8-hour drive. The opportunity to speak directly to employers was probably the best thing I ever experienced, discussing my transferable skills and qualifications along with my experience and hearing from them the value I will bring to their company was quite satisfying. I have identified which companies to invest time into research and prepare for interviews etc. My network has doubled on the day. I look forward to attending the next one.”
