Like many final year students, Victoria was coming towards the end of her time at university and didn’t know what she wanted to do after graduation. Until she downloaded Debut. “It was final year, and I didn’t really have an idea of where I wanted to go, but Debut helped me out a lot because there are loads of opportunities on there that I hadn’t thought about before”.
After signing up and applying for some jobs, she came along to Debut’s Future of Tech event with O2, and her interest in a career in IT began. “It was a great experience because I learnt a lot. They had a VR headset set up and were talking a lot about IT, and that’s really when I started thinking about IT as a potential career.”
After being Talent Spotted by FDM, she applied for their role as a Product Support Analyst. The process involved phone interviews, a face-to-face interview and an assessment centre but FDM were very supportive throughout. “The process lasted about four weeks from the start of my application to actually getting the job offer, and I was all sorted by the end of February. It was pretty good to know I’d already got a job when I was graduating.”
“Without Debut I would never have even discovered this company and the opportunities it has. Since being Talent Spotted I have applied for their Asia Pacific programme so I’m hoping to relocate abroad.”
“I’ve recommended the app to loads of my friends, who were in the same position as me and weren’t sure what they wanted to do, and they’ve been introduced to loads of roles they hadn’t considered before.”
Victoria is four weeks into her training with FDM and loving the experience. “I’ve learnt so much since starting and the company culture is amazing.”
