"Raj Shah came to the University of Southampton's School of Electronics and Computer Science because it was the best in the country and beat the University of Cambridge in the league tables in Electrical and Electronic Engineering and ranks at number one.
Indian-born Raj is also a first class student who managed to get five 'A's at A-level which won him a scholarship to ECS.
Growing up in Thailand, Raj had a big interest in the design of cars, which led to him to choose Electromechanical Engineering.
When it came to choosing a company for his industrial placement year, he had hoped to work at Rolls Royce, Jaguar or Land Rover and was disappointed initially when he did not manage to secure placements with any of them.
When he came across an advert for a placement at IBM through the Graduate Recruitment Bureau, he sent in an application and was offered a placement a role as a laboratory technician within the customer support department for IBM Cognos Software." - Read the full case study here

"I found the GRB's service top among all their competitors. Personally my primary contact was an absolute star throughout. Her calm nature, and common-sense answers helped to improve my confidence with interviews and the entire application process. Unfortunately I did not get a job straight after graduating, but with the help of the entire GRB team, their insightful tips, CV building and interview preparation, I've now got a position with a firm I hope will really move my career onwards and upwards. I have written a recommendation here to show thanks for what has been a thoroughly rewarding journey. A special mention has to be made to other team members, who pitched in for her whilst she was away. It is this collaborative commitment that really came through to me, and undoubtedly inspired me to up the level of commitment I put in. Eventually bearing very fruitful rewards. Strongly recommended to anyone looking to further their careers."
