Enhancing Sean’s employability prospects with work experience
Corecom Consulting is committed to supporting students in the West Yorkshire and Greater Manchester area, preparing them for employment.
Young college student Sean, who has a passion for technology, recently visited Corecom Consulting HQ in City Square, Leeds, for a day’s work experience, aiming to gain an understanding of a working environment.
Rick Hughes, Director and Head of Testing/QA explained:
“It was a pleasure to welcome Sean to the team for the day. We planned the day around him, so he could understand the core values of a successful business. By observing a variety of team members and departments we hope he gained some valuable skills in preparation for his further education.”
To begin, Sean was given a tour of the building, before taking part in one-to-one sessions speaking to our consultants, gaining an understanding of their career journey, whilst observing them in their every day work.
After an engaging morning he shadowed the Marketing Department attending the ‘Spotlight on Graduate Careers in Digital and Tech in Leeds’ event hosted by Leeds Beckett University. The event itself saw Jonathan Sanderson, Managing Director and Josh Dixon, Head of Software Development answer questions from students alongside peers in the technology industry from Infinity Works and Sky Betting and Gaming.
Next, Sean helped the Operations Department, gaining hands-on experience creating client invoices.
“My experience at Corecom Consulting was very beneficial. It allowed me to understand the every day work environment that the team work in. Each member gave me valuable advice I can use in the future to help me pursue a successful career in IT. I highly encourage others to also participate in work experience to further their careers.”
