Mari Pugh, graduate talent officer at Associated British Foods, says, ‘We actively look for good communication and relationship-building skills. This is particularly important because graduates on our supply chain placements work in a variety of different environments with people who might be older than them or more experienced, or come from a different background or culture. They can look to our graduates for direction in their day-to-day role.’
TARGETjobs tip: At university don’t just mix with other students – get out into the wider community, whether through part-time work or volunteering, so that you gain experience of interacting with people from different stages and walks of life.
