Assessment centre practice for visually impaired students and grads!

Assessment centres are frequently used by big companies to recruit graduates or interns, so if you’re considering applying for a graduate scheme, getting assessment centres right matters. But it can be tough to know what to expect and how to start preparing for that all-important day.


That’s where Blind in Business has stepped up. Along with Thames Water and Energy & Utility Skills, Blind in Business are running four mock assessment centres to help blind or visually impaired students and graduates get Recruitment Ready. So prepare to ace those assessment centres!
