What students say

Taking a part in this programme was a dream come true for me. I appreciate everyone's time to create this course and run it as smoothly as possible. The information which I received and learned was incredibly useful. Again, I really appreciate everyone's time and I am looking forward to taking part in other courses powered by Springpod, because it was worth my time and it was my pleasure. Thank you!
Thank you so much for putting your effort and time into this programme. You are helping to shape the future of this generation... the generation which are going to carry the future of the workforce on their shoulders'. Being able to talk about your personal careers in this industry and different ways to follow in your footsteps has inspired me so much. I am a dedicated, disciplined student but I have always felt very unsure about how to actually get a job (aside from the qualifications and education necessary). I already believed in myself, but you've all helped to make sure that I KNOW I can do it. Thank you so much :))
I wanted to say that I really appreciate all the time and work that you have put into organising this programme as well as choosing the activities, taking the time for the webinars and informing us students of early careers as well as what you do as a company in many different sectors. This has been so helpful and I couldn't be more glad that I was able to participate. It has been truly fun! Thank you very much to all those who were part of making this programme.
