Case study: Technology Graduate Programme

We spoke to Vinayak to find out how he secured a Technology Graduate Programme with PricewaterhouseCoopers via Tier 2.

Vinayak, an alumni in MSc Electronic and Electrical Engineering, shares how following advice from our Careers Service helped him to secureda placement on the Technology Graduate Programme with PwC.

It's important to attend the Careers Fairs. I saw a presentation from PwC where they explained exactly what they're looking for when they're hiring graduates.
