Case Study

Elliott was chosen as one of our top 50 graduating students and was quickly snapped up by a recruiter. Read on to hear Elliott’s incredible journey to launching his career. 

“I first heard about Rising Stars after Loughborough Uni Careers service sent an email around to BSc Economics finalists. I applied and received a call from a member of the GRB team who interviewed me. It went really well and I was delighted to be chosen!”

“I was then offered the chance to take part in the Rising Stars webinar series designed to probe deeper into what finalists are looking for from employers. I was told employers are regularly checking out Rising Star profiles on the platform and I must have caught one employer’s attention because they wanted to interview me immediately. I agreed and to be honest I'd never heard of them but I was so pleased to have discovered them because they meet all my criteria! I even turned down a job offer with one of the big four consulting firms as this company so impressed me."

"I am pleased to say that I start in July with the independent business operations consultancy as a Graduate Trainee Management Consultant. I’d like to sincerely thank the team at GRB for running Rising Stars and enabling finalists like me a unique opportunity to showcase our achievements and personalities and really get noticed by some fantastic employers.”
