Attending the Future Female Engineers event was really beneficial for my summer placement applications. I was able to speak to graduates about their experience at their respective companies, learn about the different roles available and obtain information that isn't always easy to find online.
After the day, I submitted my CV and covering letter to AECOM and, after attending an interview at the London office, I was successful in my application. I highly recommend this event as it provides a great opportunity to network and I think mentioning that I had attended the event helped make my application stand out.
Moreover, it was an enjoyable experience and a great chance to meet other female engineers in a supportive environment.
