Manchester Digital Talent Day

The annual Manchester Talent Day 2013 finally arrived and what a success it was! With over 50 exhibitors form the North West out scouting for the newest digital and creative talent the atmosphere was buzzing with anticipation and enthusiasm. The digital event aimed at students and graduates, was set up to bring together employers and digital enthusiasts who want to kick start a career. It was also a great opportunity for students to find out what kind of digital jobs they could to go into after graduation and we were there to advise them on what employers look for when recruiting graduates.


Students had the chance to network with the region's biggest and best digital companies.

What did the students think?

MMUBS Advertising and Brand Management Student David Jameson -"The event was massively helpful to me in researching future job prospects. I got to network with people I wouldn't ordinarily get the chance to in the space of a few hours. I now feel inspired to forge a career for myself in the digital sector."

Digital Media Communications student Jessica Walton -"I didn't realise how many well established companies have opportunities in the North West. I got some great advice off graduates that are currently in graduate scheme positions. I'd definitely recommend this event for any students or graduates who want to work in digital."

Digital Marketing Communications graduate Nick Riley-"Since graduating I've found it hard to know exactly what career path to take. By attending the Manchester Talent Day I've found a number of companies that offer short internships for people like to me gain some hands on experience. Without this event I wouldn't have heard of some great opportunities."

Let's do it again!

Don't just take it from us; the above statements are just a snippet of the positive feedback we got from people at the event. It was great to see students eager to have successful careers after university, who knows we could have met the future leaders in digital! We will definitely be attending next year, and so should you if you missed out this year!

It didn’t take long to build rapport with Laura, as her excellent communication skills shone through from the start. She placed me in my most recent position and was very thorough in liaising between myself and my prospective employer at the time - an often understated skill. Moving to a new city for the position at short notice was not going to be easy, but Laura made sure I was as informed and prepped as possible when going through the interview stages and seemed to always have my best interests at heart. One of the most personable recruiters I have worked with, and I will certainly be calling her first when I am considering changing position again!
