HIREME is one of our programs that helps students in Manchester find opportunities with start-ups and SMEs. HIREME’s vision is to build a place where students can find real-world jobs. Be it your first internship or an entry-level job, HIREME is here for you.
The importance of work experience
Work experience is extremely important while at university. If you look around in your course, you will see people with a similar skillset to yours. Everyone has done their assignments and everyone has passed exams. Think about what will make you stand out from the crowd. Employers look for perseverance and real-world problem-solving skills. What better way is there to complement your academic knowledge with some work experience?
Starting at a start-up
Starting your career with a start-up might make it possible for you to have a greater effect on the decisions made within the company. Unlike in many corporates, the founders are still with the company and so you will get the chance to interact with them and gain an insight into the inner-workings of that company. Who knows, the start-up you join might be just about to take off. Wouldn’t it be great to be there and experience such a life-changing ride?
Our first HIREME branded event 'Startup Piquenique' took place on the 7th November in the Bright Building and it was a success! Follow our Facebook to not miss any of the upcoming ones!
The HIREME section on our website is still in the making as we aim to launch with an array of great roles. So, keep an eye out for it and we hope you can find something suitable for you.
