“At first I was a little anxious at the idea of talking to so many people that I had never met before but I soon began to really enjoy it. What surprised me about the job was how many people I was able to talk with that were in the industry I too hoped to be in. The alumni were often very keen to talk to me about their careers which gave me a lot of ideas as to how I hope to shape my future. I was even offered a few placements.” Mike Doherty, first year Construction student and caller Funds are dispersed following the end of our financial year (August), and we look forward to updating you further on how your gift has made an impact later this year. 100% of your donation goes to the fund specified.
