The Careers Fair Season has officially started with representatives from Playle & Partners LLP attending Heriot Watt University for the Construction Management & Surveying Careers Insight.
The day centred on meeting both under and post graduate students who are looking to embark on a career in Construction Management and Quantity Surveying.
Structured around a series of speed meetings between students and employers, Amy and Luke from the Playles team spoke to students about their experiences in the industry, what they do on a daily basis, how they got into their role and about what Playles has to offer them as a prospective employer. The event was a great opportunity for students to meet experts in their chosen field and to gain a real insight into what day to day life might be like in their future job roles.
From a student vantage point this is a must-go-to event to gain tips and advice on workplace entry and has in many cases led to conditional job offers. For Playles, this year provided an excellent calibre of potential employees as well as a chance to pick up some Scottish shortbread for the rest of the office!
Edinburgh University is consistently ranked as one of the world’s top universities and offers a variety of courses for those looking to gain entry in the Construction Management and Surveying field.
