The first Ramsay careers and speed networking event included presentations from Air products, KBR, MWH Global and PM group. The event aimed to show the wide range of industries and career paths that are available to chemical engineering students today.
We started with short presentations from the companies which each covered an overview of what they do, what types of jobs they offer and what a typical role involves day-to-day. The presentations also gave a detailed insight into what internships they had to offer to the students as well as useful recruitment information.
Air products introduced us to global and large-scale company in gas industry. KBR also is global and large-scale company, however they focus on procurement, construction, petrochemical etc. MWH Group is slightly smaller scale compared with 2 companies mentioned before, but a leading company in water industry and also has various locations worldwide. PM Group is again much smaller scale than first 2 companies mentioned and covers areas such as Biopharma and Food and beverage etc.
This was followed by a question and answer session where students got an opportunity to talk to the presenters and network with company representatives. It was a great chance for students to speak directly to, and learn more about, a particular company.
All-in-all the event was successful, we received good feedback and students were pleased to have been introduced to new and exciting companies and career opportunities. Ramsay looks forward to hosting many more similar events in the future!
