TESTIMONIALS

Kelly Markwick

"I have been working with Dan at Young Professionals for a number of years, and for the past academic year we have featured our Gap Year and Apprenticeship roles on the Young Professionals app. The results have been phenomenal! Dan and the team have pushed out roles which we have struggled to fill, and quite literally overnight we've seen views and applications for those roles increase. It's positive - and reassuring - to know there is an engaged and active audience using the app, and it's been a great new channel for us to use when attracting school leavers to IBM.”
