GradLink has an extensive network of international graduates, including graduates from the ASEAN countries, who have studied at universities in the UK and are now in graduate employment. This section includes a number of unique case study examples of these. Graduates speak about how their UK education has helped them to get into their work, and what strategies they have used for reaching employers and showing they are the right candidate. We are very grateful for their invaluable input.
"Having a bit of work experience as well as an internship experience is helpful. A little bit of voluntary work is always something that enhances one's CV and employers always take note of it."

"Soft skills (e.g. work team, communication skills, etc.) are important, and a background in statistics."
