'Behind the scenes' with ABB

Gradcracker Summary:

We learn from ABB’s graduates that the company offers a lot of support in terms of further study and achieving Chartership. Jackie, ABB’s head of recruitment, emphasises the importance of telling them about your hobbies and any type of work experience in your application. Another wide-ranging and well-attended webinar!

Here’s one of the many kind comments we received…

"Thank you Gradcracker – a great webinar which enables students considering a career with us to know how we work and what our graduates have to say about us. It was a very open and honest exchange of dialogue and our graduates enjoyed participating; it was, for some, the first online webinar they had experienced.

"We welcome this as a future direction of student engagement, as Gradcracker is our trusted partner when we are recruiting graduates." – Jackie McMahon, Head of Talent Management & Talent Acquisition at ABB
