What is QTaster?

Find out more about what QTaster involves, and how taking part can benefit you.

What is QTaster?

Would you like to find out what your chosen career path is really like? Are you looking to gain more insight into a sector? Or do you just have no idea where to start with making your career choices? QTaster gives you the opportunity to gain an insight into different sectors, working environments and roles across a range of graduate employers.

What will a QTaster session involve?

All QTaster sessions will take place in-person. These may include:

  • Presentations by different speakers from across the organisation;
  • Information about their internship and graduate recruitment processes;
  • Activities;
  • Facilitated networking sessions;
  • And, of course, the opportunity to ask lots of questions!

You will also attend an introductory session at the beginning of the programme and a career development session at the end of the programme. These training sessions will help you to make the most of the employer-led sessions and to apply your new commercial awareness and networking skills to shape your career choices. 

Can I choose which employers I visit?

You will be able to choose which three employers you want to visit. We will be confirming all the participating employers during September. Employers that have hosted in the past - and please note these are just examples - include British Airways, Expedia Group, Pearson, Mazars, Microsoft, J.P. Morgan, World Resources Institute and ING. 

What have previous QTaster participants said?

"I absolutely loved my course but had no idea what it actually led to… [through QTaster] I learnt how my degree allows me to work in many different sectors."

"I found QTaster very informative and engaging. I met different employers and graduates who I will connect with on LinkedIn. I also met like-minded undergraduates that are in a similar position to me and I made new friends."

"I think the sessions were very informative and the panellists gave a lot of insight into the companies. This has been highly instrumental in my decision-making with regards to my career direction."
