For several years Fastnet – The Talent Group® has been partnering with Waterford Institute of Technology for two years, collaborating with the Science department.
On a regular basis our colleagues conduct workshops around Career Choices, CV Optimisation and Interview Preparation. There is always a very high level of engagement with the students during these sessions. The group projects highlight to the students what skills and attributes are required to develop and manage their careers throughout their working lives.
Annually we attend WIT's Science Fair, where our talent consultants meet students interested in pursuing a career in the Life Sciences industry. We work proactively with the Career Services team to help students and graduates gain initial employment, maintain employment, and obtain new employment.
The Science department at Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) has worked with Fastnet regarding CV and interview workshops for undergraduate students for the past two academic years. During this time the workshops delivered have been very positively received. Therese Keohane and Laura Curtin were exceptional in their attention to detail for the events this academic year. We look forward to working with them again in the new year.
