The opportunity to take a placement year to increase my employability was what first attracted me to the University of Surrey. I also loved the beautiful campus and the course contained all the areas of psychology that interested me.
I gained so much confidence during my time at Surrey. I made lifelong friends, experienced living in a new place and became more independent. I am now working in the Talent Acquisition Team at IBM, as the UK Onboarding Success Partner. I love giving our New Hires a unique and exceptional experience when they join IBM. I would like to take my Psychology degree further in the future by doing further study in Occupational Psychology.
Surrey massively influenced my career as I did my placement year with IBM. It was thanks to this that I was offered a place on the graduate scheme. I would never have been given that role if it wasn’t for my placement year.
