In March of 2020, the UK and the world took an unexpected direction as COVID-19 hit, imposing a lockdown period lasting 4 months. As a result more than a quarter of businesses are reducing the number of graduates they recruit this year. The undeniable impact this would have on graduates and their career journey was not missed by our team at Splento. What did we do? We developed and delivered a 4-week practical crash course, Ready 4 Work, focusing on search engine optimisation, content marketing, sales, video content production and a myriad of soft skills.
One highlight of the 4 weeks, as there were many, was a fireside chat with Ben Gutkovich founder of Consulting Case Pro. We discussed his consulting expertise, how he has helped 100+ candidates secure an offer from top tier consulting firms and 21st century work. Ben’s insights have been formulated into an easy to digest framework for graduates to propel their careers in 2020 and beyond. We hope this helps!
