Internships in Manchester and Salford19 February 2015
Building on the success of the two ‘Meet the SMEs’ events last year, Tuesday 27 January saw 25 local small and medium enterprises (SMEs) meet with over 100 of Salford Business School students and graduates, our biggest turn out yet.
These events help to match students and employers for short-term internships: offering our students relevant work experience that is now so vital when embarking on a graduate job search.
The event was organised by the Salford Business School Employability Hub team, of which I am a part of, alongside my colleagues Pam Mullin and Kerry Moores. The Employability Hub houses two fantastic schemes, Unite with Business and Business Innovation Projects, which give our students and graduates access to short-term opportunities within a wide range of organisations from local small businesses to multinational companies.
