Ceremony to mark graduate work placement success

Published: Tuesday, 01 September 2009   Category: Work Experience

A group of graduates who undertook work experience courtesy of the Shell Step organisation over the summer are to be congratulated in a ceremony taking place today (September 1st).

Held at the Highlands and Islands Enterprise headquarters in Inverness, Scotland, the event will see the 37 former university students finish the eight-week paid work experience schemes, the Press and Journal reported.

Gaining valuable industry experience, Ewan Murray from Strathclyde University took up a position at renewable energy developers AWS Ocean Energy where he believes may lead to a graduate job with the firm.

He told the newspaper: "My placement gave me a great insight into wave and tidal energy in Scotland. The work I was given felt like I really contributed to the company and hopefully it's the start of a future relationship with AWS."

Those looking for graduate jobs in the current economic condition should be aided in finding apprenticeship schemes, the Confederation of British Industry recently said.
