This year’s TARGETJobs Undergraduate of the Year awards have now opened for entries, giving students the chance to be crowned as the most employable in the country.
The awards, which were entered by more than 4,000 students from over 140 universities last year, were set up to identify and celebrate the UK’s best undergraduates. The process tests the academic excellence, ability at online assessments, as well as written communication and interpersonal skills.
University of Liverpool Management School student, Stephanie Peters (pictured), was celebrated last year as one of the UK’s most talented future managers out of the top 10 finalist in the Management category in the awards.
There are 11 award categories to enter which are sponsored by 11 prominent graduate recruiters including Marks & Spencer, Nestle, E-on and Rolls Royce.
Commenting on last year’s awards, finalist Stephanie Peters said: ““The whole process has been a fantastic experience. I was delighted to be named as a finalist in such a prominent national competition and there’s no doubt that I’m taking a lot away with me in terms of experience and confidence.”
Prizes include international placements and trips, as well as the potential to secure a graduate job.
Entrants start the process online with three or four tests devised by CEB’s SHL Talent Measurement Solutions, and three questions posed by the sponsor. The deadline to complete the entry is 31 January 2014.
The students who perform best in the tests and who best match the requirements of the sponsors are selected for the second stage which involves an assessment centre. The best ten students are then invited to the Awards event in London where the winner is announced.
