Harper Adams University Graduate Engineering and Manufacturing Recruitment and Careers WorkshopJonathan Lee Recruitment has partnered with Harper Adams University for a second year, offering practical advice to undergraduates about securing their first job after graduation. Aftersales Manager, David Powers and Recruiter, Jessica Williams presented to students and academic staff. Their presentation covered how to create a structured and successful CV in addition to the recruitment process after a CV has been sent.

David Powers commented "it is an invaluable opportunity for students to really understand the processes behind finding their first professional job. For many this will be the first time that they've experienced job boards and recruitment agencies, so to understand the basics is essential. As engineering, technical and manufacturing recruitment specialists, it is refreshing to see how Harper Adams University' applied courses have prepared students, strengthening their employability skills and providing the best assistance in securing their chosen career within engineering."

Jessica Williams commented "I'm really impressed with students capability, ambition and proactive approach to building their work experience portfolio - some even completing international placements outside of term time. We are certain that our presentation and CV clinic will help students to stand out from the crowd."

Dave Allan, Senior Lecturer and Innovation Leader at Harper Adams University's Engineering Department commented "students and lecturers have found Jonathan Lee Recruitment's presentation extremely informative, engaging and rewarding. It is from partnerships like this, alongside our professionally focussed vocational studies, which ensure that our students are highly sought after by employers.

"After Jonathan Lee Recruitment's workshop last year, several employers commented on the clear improvement in undergraduates CVs. This can only prove the value of Jonathan Lee Recruitment's partnership. We continually endeavour to enhance our student's chances of securing industry placements, graduate schemes and entry level positions and this is reflected in the very high employment rates of our students.

"The curriculum at Harper Adams University is based on very close links with industry, in particular those concerned with the development of off highway vehicles as well as those linked to the food chain and rural economies. The campus is at the heart of a working farm and countryside estate with high quality engineering facilities on site, and this enables academic staff to develop students' technical and practical skills, which underpin the applied and professional nature of our courses."
