What I found to be the best part of Norwich Business School’s Graduate Trainee Management Scheme was being able to skip the long and painstaking process of filling out the online applications that most graduate positions favour. Furthermore when applying, you submit to multiple positions across a variety of businesses, where you know that your application and personal statement will be looked at in detail rather than being subjected to an automated scanner.
The interview and assessment day experiences are invaluable to any graduate seeking employment and I would have been grateful to the Graduate Trainee Management Scheme even if I hadn’t been offered a position because of this.
Both my housemate and I have been offered positions through the Graduate Trainee Management Scheme, something which would never happen when applying for jobs with thousands of applicants! Therefore combined with the experience to be gained from just the Interview and Assessment Days, I would recommend for all Norwich Business School students to apply to the Graduate Trainee Management Scheme in the coming years.
