Paul Vance, Director of Resourcing, KPMG
Recruiting talented students from DCU is always a priority each year. As a leading international professional services firm, we pride ourselves on the depth of talent and expertise that we provide to our clients. They demand the very best service and advice from KPMG people. To satisfy this demand, we recruit only the best interns and graduates in the country. At entry, we demand that interns and graduates must be academically excellent, have great business awareness and be well-rounded individuals. These qualities are in abundance among DCU students.
Ted Wright, Managing Director, Writech Industrial Services Ltd
As a graduate of DCU, I appreciate the importance of the INTRA placement and the exposure it provides. I was determined to offer the same experience if I was ever in a position to do so. As an employer, I have taken a number of students over the past five years. This year we asked the last INTRA student to join us on a full-time basis after graduation. Students leave DCU with the confidence to teach themselves almost anything. This skill is very important in today's business. The ability to think on one’s feet, learn and adapt is essential. Experience then makes any person with those skills invaluable.
