March Blog – by JP Trett Student Ambassador Josh Joachim

We’ve just about had enough of all this B*****! 

Well, well, well, in February I wrote that the last day of spring term was going to coincide with the day we left the EU… how wrong I was! B***** not only is the bane of everyone’s general life but also for us business students, who try to offer strategic recommendations in our assignments but creativity is becoming increasingly restricted by whatever (if any) B***** outcome if forthcoming!

Anyway, enough of that, it is quite surreal thinking that I am now entering my final term at Harper Adams University. It doesn’t seem 5 minutes since I first experienced the M6 gridlock and then proceeded to experience the anxiety of whether the M6 Toll barrier would allow me through. I must say, this year has flown by and now we really are entering the business end of the season. A busy Easter “holidays” beckons for many, with dissertations and the final few assignments handed in within the first fortnight back, then on to doing all that wider reading meant for earlier reading weeks…

This term has been an epic one for many reasons. One of the highlights was certainly the lecture given by Mark Hemming, Regional Director of Amazon UK, who has the incredible job of overseeing 10 Amazon fulfilment centres – it was a fantastic insight into their business model and the level of planning that goes into their operations.

Along with the 6 Nations rugby, the Cheltenham Festival also attracts a sizeable Harper contingent and this year was no different, with the luck of the Irish staying with us for Paddy’s Ball. Hats off to Harper Ireland again for smashing it with the organisation and it was once again a memorable (partially) night in the SU!

The Careers Fair 2019 was also held a couple of weeks ago, an ideal opportunity for students to meet with experts in the recruitment industry including Phoebe and Anna from JP Trett. “Highly insightful” and “very useful” were the verdicts from students who attended, and the event also acted as an opportune reminder for final years to get a handle on what career opportunities are currently out there, ready for finishing in a matter of just a few weeks now!

Looking ahead, I’m sure there will be the need for some re-upholstering on the 24hr room computer chairs as several deadlines approach. Many final and 2nd years will still be travelling the length and breadth of the British Isles in the coming weeks searching for graduate and placement positions, for which specialist interview advice from JP Trett can be found below!

All that’s left to say is have a smashing Easter and Go well!
