Testimonials

“I am absolutely thrilled to have been chosen to complete an internship. I was blessed to have King’s by my side to support me throughout the application process.

Given that Business is one of the few courses that doesn’t feature a work experience component, the opportunity to gain real life experience prior to completing my degree will be invaluable.

I’m forever grateful for the King’s connection that has made this whole experience possible.”

– Eva McKee

“When I was contacted by King’s about a potential internship, I was immediately excited, as I had been looking to gain some applicable experience in my chosen field.

I was aware that my resume and cover letter needed some work for me to be successful. Thankfully, King’s has plenty of experience with undergraduate engineers and preparing them for job interviews like this one.

I was thrilled to hear that I had received the job offer. I couldn’t have done it without the support I received from the Academic and Career Development Team.”

– Nayan Patel

“Lynda’s wealth of experience working in recruitment, means she was able help me at each stage of the recruitment process from how to create a successful CV to preparation and tips for job interviews.

I highly recommend that all Kingsmen and Kingswomen make an appointment to see her as soon as possible to explore some opportunities for work related to your degree.”

– Brandon Palmer

“After being approached by the Academic and Career Development Team about a position, I didn’t know what to expect but Lynda helped me through the process of preparing a formal resume and preparing me for different interview questions.

Being a student at King’s Collegehas given me the opportunity of a job I didn’t expect to get so early on in my degree. Without the guidance and preparation provided by King’s I’m not sure this would have happened.”
