"I'm a student of Business Management with Law, 10 months into a 1 year placement as a technical account manager at Microsoft, which I found on Ratemyplacement.com.
My placement year has been, undeniably, one of the best career decisions I've made. Beyond all of the networking and skills and opportunities, it's pretty nice to be on a salary and earning credit towards your degree, whilst you're at it"Michael Scaife, BSc Business with Law
