"Whilst I can't imagine my experience is the standard, I can't thank PGP enough for what they've done. Within two weeks of signing up I had been placed in an internship and offered a full-time position. Throughout the entire process Premium Graduate Placements always supported me and without their help I believe I would not have found employment for quite some time."

"When I signed on with PGP I was assigned to a Consultant, who was friendly and attentive to my needs. With the submission of my resume with PGP, within 5 days I had an interview with a company of my interested field and began working the next day. This opportunity was not advertised on any career's channels and was only accessible directly through PGP's close relationship with the company."
