Before coming to university, I made a list of all the things that I wanted to get involved in as I think were now living in an age where you need to have done more than just your degree at university.
This year, Im the Vice President of the African-Caribbean Society (ACS) and Vice President of the ONE Society. ACS has a number of different career opportunities for its members and in my first year, I also went to a number of events via the Careers Centre.
When Ive had interviews for internships, most of my examples for competencies have come from all the extra activities that Ive been involved in. My leadership, teamwork and communication skills have been developed. I think thats really important as when you go into the word of work, those are the essential traits that you need!
