2020 student case studies

'I would highly recommend joining the Talent Match scheme as the tailored support and feedback received from the coordinators and wider Careers Network team at Loughborough is extremely useful for future placement and job applications. The internships provide a fantastic opportunity to get involved and have responsibility in real working projects and gain tangible and transferrable skills. They are also matched directly to your industries and job areas of choice, making it a great way to establish your specific interests and job role preferences early on in your career.' - Bryanna, Intern at Access Generation

'Working for Visualist has been an amazing experience. It has taught me how to be a better communicator, particularly due to the internship being remote. The start-up environment was challenging, but hugely beneficial and I feel I am finishing the internship as a better individual worker ready for my next challenge' - Emma, Intern at Visualist


'Any work experience is a great experience and can sometimes be (as in my case) an experience of a lifetime. It is a great opportunity to not only gain work experience but also an intimate knowledge of the different stages of job applications and how to make a competitive application. I am confident that the knowledge I gained through this process will assist me in applying for future jobs. I also met such amazing people through my internship and made new friends too! Through the scheme I was able push myself and step out of my comfort zone as well as work alongside some incredible individuals.' - Nyasha, Intern at Visualist
