Last Wednesday, I attended an ICAEW “Speed Meet” networking event at Kingston Business School. The premise of the event is to invite along local employers and accounting professionals to undertake 3 minute speed interviews with final year accounting and finance students.

It was a really rewarding event, which not only benefited the students in getting valuable advice and interview experience (especially about how to make a great first impression!), but also benefited employers who are looking for new potential recruits.

This being my first time on the ‘other side’ of the interview table, plus with the added time pressure, I think I was initially almost as nervous as the candidates! But after the first few, I settled in and met 22 enthusiastic and confident students who I am sure will have great future success. What particularly impressed me was the extensive work experience gained by the students, which is a testament to Kingston Business School’s year placement programme, but also the students who have put in the time and effort to get the offer.
