Graduates shine in employability test

Graduates of Falmouth University have been boosting their attractiveness to employers by taking part in a special program supported by Eight Wire.

Eight Wire was asked to contribute to the new Falmouth University employability scheme aimed at increasing the employability prospects after graduation of students at the university.

The forum received widespread interest, attracting around 50 regional and national employers from a wide range of industry sectors, to a special event at the Tremough campus.

As part of the scheme, Eight Wire set a task for students which involved critiquing its business practices and offering ideas for providing new products to existing clients.

Delivering a presentation to director, Jamie Smith, the students impressed him with their business ideas and by showing the fortitude to professionally critique an established business. In return the graduates received CV and recruitment advice.

Jamie said: “It is a pleasure to work with Falmouth University and other representatives of industry to help unlock the immense potential that Falmouth University graduates display. It was particularly impressive to see how the graduates tackled the difficult task we set them.”

All that remains to say is watch out for this batch of budding job-seekers: Rachael Baskeyfield, Natalie Pickering, Faye Bishop, Hugh Cowling, David Fawcett and Lara Hawthorne.
