We are bringing together VW, Tesco & Ashurst on the 23rd of February for MyKindaFuture's Digital Q&A. You will get the opportunity to chat online to top employers, getting advice hints and tips about their recruitment processes and finding out how you can stand out whilst applying for roles. 


Throughout this lunchtime session, you will have the opportunity to pick the brains of leading employers to gain fantastic insight into the recruitment process and how you can stand out in the crowded market for internships, placements or graduate roles! 

Even if you're not applying for these companies this is your chance to get advice and help on how to be successful in the recruitment process.

So how does it work? 

Don't worry - you won't be on video! The event is an online chat where students and employers talk in a chatroom style application. This means you can take part whilst having some lunch in the canteen, revising in the library or just relaxing on your sofa at home! Everyone will see your first name only so you don't have to worry about any job applications or CV's being affected by what you ask. 

But what would I say?! 

You can be as specific or as broad as you like with your questions. you might have a question for a particular part of the assessment process or want to find out from each employer what they think the most important qualities for students to have is. 

Some questions which are good to start would be: 

  • How can I best prepare for an assessment centre? 

  • What do you look for in online applications? 

  • How should I show off my skills in an online application form?

  • What training and development do you offer to your placement / graduate students? 

  • What experience do you look for in students?

  • What is the best thing I can do whilst still at university to develop my skills and experience for your roles?

  • What do you think is the special thing about working for your company?
