14th February 2015: Interviewer for The Times Final Year Student Survey

This past week I’ve been busy interviewing final year students at my university, Exeter. A position I was awarded last month along with 29 others, I was set a target number of interviews to achieve over a week. Through friends of friends, contacting societies and approaching strangers with a smile (and bakewell tarts), I’ve now completed that target. The survey (lasting roughly 20 minutes) focused on graduates’ aspirations and their approaches to the current job market. It’s been a challenging but rewarding week, as I’ve come realise just how politically engaged students are today; in fact, Exeter recently came out on top with the greatest percentage of students in the country voting for their new Student Guild (SABB) elections.
