Career Development

I've been working on my career development since starting my studies at University in 2014. I've learnt quite a lot in the world of work.

You can find My Placement Year specific posts here and BT Graduate Scheme specific posts here. For more information about my career development history, feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn.
