The search continues for the QUB Apprentice
Jim Eastwood pictured with the finalists of this year's QUB Apprentice
Later this month ‘Jedi’ Jim Eastwood will decide who is hired as this year’s QUB Apprentice.
Eight finalists have been battling it out for this year’s QUB Apprentice title and a top prize of having their tuition fees paid for one year (up to the value of £3,465), £300 of high street vouchers and a two-week placement with Deloitte.
In the run-up to the final, which takes place on 21 November, the finalists are undertaking a series of tasks, with one being ‘fired’ each week.
Speaking about the competition, Aidan Hughes, Vice-President of the Students’ Union, said: “One of the most important challenges facing students in today’s competitive job market is employment and employability. Initiatives like the QUB Apprentice give students a chance to improve their skills and gain vital experience that will help them stay ahead of the competition and stand-out to potential employers.”
