In this video blog post Peter Goring, a student at Kingston University, talks about the need for university students to have some form of “guaranteed work placement.” He says, “Many student do not understand the benefits of getting a placement.”

However, Goring believes that if universities only select a few companies for industry placements, it may restrict student choice and their experience. 
H advises students to start early in the jobs market. “Students have to learn to sell themselves well and build a portfolio now, such as create a website from scratch, with lots of pictures of what you have done, using clear concise writing.”
