Good news; worth sharing?

Have you got a story to share about how you landed a job or internship?

We are launching a new series of posts “How I got my job” and would love to hear from you about the methods you have used to secure a job, internship or work experience. We are particularly interested in hearing from you if you have secured a job in a creative way.

Contact me, Jess, at J.E.Henderson@leeds.ac.uk or my colleague Laura on L.M.D.Trotter@leeds.ac.uk
