30 April 2015
Among tough competition Nathan Craig Industrial Economics undergraduate at Nottingham University Business School, took home the title of Management Undergraduate of the Year at the TARGETjobs Undergraduate of the Year Awards 2015.
On Friday 24 April at the event held in Canary Wharf, Nathan and 109 other undergraduates from universities around the country were invited to the final, hosted by television presenter Fiona Bruce where the winners of 12 different categories were announced.
The winning prize for Nathan is a 10 week summer internship with Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Graduate Employer of the Year 2013, which includes a week in the USA.
Nathan says he has thoroughly enjoyed the process and is thankful for all the support he has received along the way. He said "I have had a fantastic experience throughout the competition with both Enterprise Rent-A-Car and TARGETjobs. Both have been a great help and have guided me through the process.
The process itself was a great learning experience where I was able to network with current Enterprise employees and really get to know the type of individual who would be successful in the business. I would encourage everyone to apply to their relevant award category because of the positive experience I had. After all you have to be in it to win it!"
The application process included a series of online tests, application forms and interviews before the finalists were invited to an assessment centre. Nathan impressed the award sponsors with his performance in a group discussion, leading a morning meeting and a one-to-one interview.
Ashley Hever, from Enterprise Rent-A-Car said "Throughout the process Nathan was able to demonstrate great leadership skills in all the various exercises and communicate his leadership examples effectively. He gave examples from his academic, sporting and previous work experience and also showed how important networking is in leadership."
Out of all 12 categories including Future Business Leader, Languages, Male and Female, six University Of Nottingham students made the final including Nottingham University Business School student Kate Nichols (BA Management with German).
