Edinburgh Live! 30.11.07

The bell is ringing for another year at universities across the country which means it is time to enter NCE’s “How to Get a Job in Civil Engineering – Live!” event which is once again being sponsored by leading global consultant WSP.
Up for grabs are 50 places on a free weekend that will show you how to get the best job you can when you graduate – so engineering students pay attention!

All you have to do is enter your details on and answer two questions about civil engineering and your course. During the weekend there will be opportunities to find out how the civil engineering industry works from graduates and senior industry figures, get tips on interview techniques and CV writing and find out what you could earn. Three lucky students will win an expenses paid trip to either New York, Stockholm or Ireland, presented by our very own editor Antony Oliver.

New York winner at the inaugural event last year Oran Hassan had a fantastic time:

“My New York trip with WSP has been whistle-stop in every sense, an amazing experience. From a civil engineering point of view you will see high-rise construction at its most perfect.”

Head of WSP’s organising team for the event Gurminder Sagoo says: “Following on from the success of last years event, WSP is pleased to be working with NCE again and sees this as a real opportunity for students coming towards the end of their education to interact on a one-to-one basis with consultants, contractors and clients. “We are excited to be part of this innovative event and hope that it becomes a key date in all graduates’ calendars in the forthcoming years. This is really an opportunity not to be missed if you are seeking to make a name for yourself in engineering, so get your entries in for what will be a fun packed and weekend.!”
