Summertime is over for most of us and that means one thing – back to business. With students heading back to the books, this week’s podcast looks at tactical ways to get focused for academic success and making the most of your degree, ready to bag that first job. This week’s guests, Daniel Soloye and Patrick Agese, developed a fantastic professional development enterprise, First Employ, which they started fresh out of university to help job seekers thrive in the first few years of their careers. After graduating from De Montfort University with a Degree in International Marketing and Business, Daniel worked in a number of different marketing roles, developing his love for start up businesses before subsequently building his own. He joined forces with long-time business partner Patrick to radically change the game of recruitment. Patrick graduated with a First Class Degree in Green Energy from De Montfort University, Patrick bagged his dream job as an Energy Engineer at the world’s largest fragrance and flavouring firm. He currently works as an Energy Analyst at the fastest growing firm in the UK. Together, they share their golden tips for academic success and unpack the topic of starting sustainable businesses whilst at university.
