EVENT - Meet Jeremy Budd, Vice President (Europe) IBM

Meet Jeremy Budd, Vice President (Europe) IBM – Wednesday 6th November 2013

 
Coach leaving 1.00pm from Norwich arriving UEA London around 4pm.
 
 
4.30 – 5.30pm: Jeremy Budd, VP (Europe) IBM is giving a key note speech – ‘What we look for in graduates’
 
Jeremy is a history graduate from Exeter, who has worked his way up through the ranks of IBM.  He’s a really engaging and inspiring speaker, and as his perspective is that of an employer, his talk has masses of good advice, hints and tips for students who are looking for graduate jobs.  As you can imagine he’s an extremely busy man, so it’s a real coup that he’s agreed to come and speak to UEA students; this is a fantastic opportunity and really shouldn’t be missed.  He will be staying on for a short while afterwards to meet students.
