The latest issue (February 2017) of the Phoenix, the AGCAS journal, features an article with Sonru client, University of Liverpool’s Careers & Employability Service.
In a Placements special, Rachael Collins, Head of Placements, spoke about how they use the game ‘Snakes and Ladders’ to illustrate their achievements as a team and the challenges they had overcome and how the game drew more parallels with placement activity than they had anticipated, specifically:
- Getting along with others and taking turns
- Acceptance that things may not always go your way
- Resilience and persistence to keep going even when it looks like you can’t catch the competition
“We recognise that as a northern university, it is not always possible for organisations based in the south to come and support all of our activity. As our numbers have grown, we have had to accept that we are not going to place every student with a company of their choice in the Liverpool region. In response to this, we invested in Sonru (video interviewing software). This has meant that no matter where the company is located we can arrange for our students to engage with the organisation. This has been a game-changer for a university with a high proportion of widening participation students.”
