14 reasons you should be a camp counselor at summer camp in America

  1. The Bonds you Make

You won’t really understand the impact you’ve had on your campers until they step onto the bus on the last day of camp. You’ve looked after these kids for the last two months, you’ve been their cool big sibling, you’ve been their best friend and you’ve been a massive part of their summer, what you will realise in the months to come is that they’ve also been a big part of your summer camp experience. It won’t take you long to realise that being a camp counselor is more rewarding than any job you’ll ever have.

Camp Leaders

  1. The Lessons you Learn

Everyday at camp is a learning experience. Whether it’s immersing yourself in new activities or understanding other people, you will continue to grow as the summer goes on. You’re spending 2 months in a new environment, embrace the opportunities.

  1. Camp Friends are the Best Friends

The friendships you make with your fellow camp counselors will last a lifetime. You’ve shared an amazing experience together. After two months you’ll have grown closer to some amazing people and whilst some of these friends you may never see again there will be those that you continue to connect with for the rest of your life. It’s the definition of bittersweet.

  1. Counselors are just Big Campers

Do you remember spending your summers covered in dirt and sand and not caring what you look like? You’ll be reminded at camp. You’ll lose your inhibitions and remember how great it is to be outdoors. It’s fun, freeing and an incredibly positive experience.

  1. Camp Traditions

Some camp traditions go back over a hundred years! Camp traditions are rooted into camp and they are there so you always have something to look forward to. Whether it’s choosing a theme for your bunk, a campfire with s’mores or a late night pool party you will never want to miss out on the classics.

  1. It’s the Best Job you’ll Ever Have

The best thing about camp is that it never feels like work. It’s not always easy and there’s times you’ll want to spend a day catching up on sleep but you wouldn’t change it for the world. You’ll get to spend all day hanging out with your group, trying new activities, enjoying the sunshine and eating your bodyweight in food each day.

  1. The Tan

After spending up to 4 months in America even your tan will have a tan.

  1. The Camp Bubble

You become disconnected from technology, social media and the outside world. Instead you form meaningful relationships, connect and have the best conversations with so many different people.

(Don’t get us wrong, your instagram will still look awesome by the end of the summer)

  1. This One Time, at Summer Camp…

All your stories will start to begin with,  “This one time, at summer camp…,” and they will be your best ever memories. You’ll tell anyone who will listen about camp, even if they don’t want to listen!

  1. Days off Rock

You get days off at summer camp each week. You’ll be allowed to visit local towns and attractions, go camping, cliff-diving, head out, eat, sleep and hang out with a bunch of cool people.

  1.  Try New Things

You’ll also have free time, you can choose to spend this relaxing or you can use this time to join different groups and activities, ever wanted to climb the rock wall, attempt the leap of faith or take a paddleboard out onto the lake… well you can, you have two months to push yourself.

  1. The Food

Okay, maybe by the last week of camp you’ll not want another pancake ever again, but the first 8 weeks you’ll be enjoying hot dogs, grilled chicken, bbq cookouts, all you can eat wings, and more… oh there are healthy options too, but it doesn’t sound as fun!

  1. Travel

When the summer camp ends, the travel adventure begins. On the J-1 Visa you’ll have up to a month after camp to travel America, you’ll be able to roadtrip with your friends at camp or book onto a Camp Leaders TrekAmerica tour and discover the best of America.

  1. You’ll Never be the Same Again

Camp changes you in so many ways. You’ll never be the same after.

Top 5 interview mistakes that could cost you the job offer

Reed Scientific has shared with us their Linkedin article with their tips and advice on how to avoid making these mistakes.


An interview is a conversation between you and an employer and an opportunity for both parties to find out if they are suited to each other. The employer will try and find out as much information as possible to see if you are suitable for the job and will fit in with the team. From your side, you will gather information to help you decide if the opportunity is right for you whilst selling your skills, experience and personality to help secure a job offer.

There are lots of tips & advice we can give to help you achieve these goals; researching the company, the interviewers, preparing answers for the most common questions etc. However, in this article, we would like to highlight the top mistakes candidates are making that are potentially costing them the offer.

1.     Applying for any job and not showing a genuine interest in the one they are interviewing for

The most common negative feedback we receive from clients is that they didn’t feel the candidate was interested specifically in their job or their company. During the interview you need to be able to demonstrate that you are not just interested in any job but that you want this one and that you can tell them the reasons why!

2.     Being too laid back or seeming uninterested

Interviewers will be considering how you would fit in with the team. It is important that you appear natural and comfortable but avoid appearing “too laid back or uninterested” as this is a concern to clients. So aim to be enthusiastic and engaging whilst always keeping in mind that you need to present yourself in a professional manner and act as you would in the workplace.

3.     Complaining about current or previous employers

Always avoid bringing negativity into an interview room. No complaining, no rants. Remember that the scientific community is well connected. You may risk complaining about the interviewer’s best friend or one of the company’s client or collaborator. Complaining about your employer may also make the interviewer wonder what you would say about them.

4.     Missing the opportunity to highlight your skills & experience

To know if you have the skills required for the job, the interviewer needs to hear about specific examples with proven results. By being vague or giving general answers, you are missing the chance to show what you can do and creating doubt in the interviewer’s mind. Prepare examples beforehand for every required skill listed in the job description and use the STAR approach when answering questions.

5.     Not showing long term commitment

Hiring and training someone cost time and money. An employer doesn’t want a newly hired employee to leave after a few months. A common mistake is for a candidate to reveal too much about their future plans. You may wish to take a year off to travel or go back to university after gaining work experience or even need to relocate in the near future for family reasons. All these sentences could raise red flags in an interviewer’s mind and make them question your long term commitment to the company.

In summary, an interview can be a stressful time and preparation is key to success. However, always keep in mind that if you have reached the interview stage it means the employer already feels positively about your application. Build upon that; prove your skills with examples, show your interest in a long term career with the company and leave the room with a smile on your face.

At Reed Scientific, we help all our candidates prepare for their interviews. If your interview is coming up and you have any questions, do not hesitate to give your consultant a call. Find our contact details on the following link: https://www.reedglobal.com/branches/disciplines/scientific


Advice on getting your first tech job – from an IT recruitment agency

This guest post was created in collaboration with Venturi Group one of the UK’s top IT recruitment agencies.

As an IT recruitment agency, we work with recent graduates every day. For many students, getting that first foot on the career ladder after finishing university is a daunting prospect. While some nerves are unavoidable, fortunately, there are things to can do to give yourself a headstart in today’s competitive job market. Below we have outlined some advice on what to do before beginning your search for your first role in the tech industry.

Get involved in projects outside university

You’ve probably heard this one a few times before. Employers look fondly upon students who are engaged in technical projects outside university. After all, it’s a clear indication of a genuine passion for technology. In a market saturated by graduates, having that extra something on your CV will inevitably make you stand out from the crowd. For example, being able to list coding projects you have worked on, hack-a-thons you have entered, or internships you have undertaken are all major advantages when it comes to applying for jobs.

“When looking through graduate Software Developer CVs, candidates that have a side project always grab my attention. Ideally, they’re doing some web development outside of the classroom to put in to practice the theory they are learning. Those that have pet projects they are really excited about usually perform better at interview and get placed sooner than those who don’t. It’s hard to fake that kind of enthusiasm and interest,” said Adam Ferguson, Principal Consultant at Venturi.

Work on your ‘soft skills’

Some may be rolling their eyes at the mention of ‘soft skills’. But in tech many employers put a premium on them. A CV that reads like a long list of programming languages is unlikely to engage a recruiter or hiring manager. This is not to say that technical skills aren’t important. Obviously, if the development job you are applying for requires a lot of Java-based coding, then you’d better know your Java. However, much of what separates average graduates from those that are truly outstanding is not their technical expertise – it’s their ability to work well with others. Tech companies now put skills such as communication, teamwork, and leadership on an equal footing with the amount of code you can write in a day.

Think of ways to demonstrate these softer skills on your CV by mentioning times you’ve solved problems through communication or detailing summer placements where you worked as part of a team. By putting an emphasis on communication and teamwork you’re showing not only can you master the “nuts and bolts” of the role but you’ll also be able to articulate why you’re doing what you’re doing to other departments and how that will ultimately benefit them.

Research all potential avenues for employment

The tech sector spans across all industries and includes a wide diversity of roles – from Big Data Analysts to Security Architects. As well as deciding on which roles and industries are a good fit for your skill set, you should give some thought to what sized company you would like for. The experience of working at a company with more than 10,000 employees is very different to working for one with 50. Do you want the structure and support of a large corporate company? Or the freedom and responsibility of a tech startup?

Always be open to learning new skills

One thing all hiring managers like to see is a candidate who has a demonstrated ability to adapt to new challenges. The pace of change in tech is relentless. Therefore, you need to get comfortable with the idea of continual learning after graduation. A programming language that is a hot topic now could fade into obscurity six months later. Keeping up to date with the latest trends and developments in the industry will come in handy at interviews. Hiring managers are always impressed by a graduate with an eye toward the future.


Top 8 tips for disclosing a disability from Change 100

Change 100 wanted to share with you some of the very helpful information that came out of the discussions from their first Change100 online workshop.

Top 8 tips for disclosing a disability

1. Disclose because you want to. You’re under no legal obligation to disclose your disability but doing so may help you to get reasonable adjustments to enable you to fulfil your potential.

2. Disclose because it’s beneficial to you! Ask yourself, if I don’t disclose, and don’t ask for reasonable adjustments, will it affect my performance? Employers want to recruit the best talent from a level playing field, so let them know what you need.

3. During applications, use your disability to demonstrate skills you have developed through managing your condition, like resilience, initiative and problem-solving.

4. Often disclosing sooner is better, so employers have time to put in place reasonable adjustments for you.

5. Tell an employer what you need to overcome any barriers your disability may present. Employers care more about this than what those barriers are.

6. Avoid complicated medical terminology. Employers may not have specialist knowledge of your condition. Concentrate more on how it affects you, and what you need to overcome it.

7. Get experience! Learn how your disability affects you in work, develop your core competencies and discover what reasonable adjustments you need. (At Change100, we’ll provide you with this paid experience at a prestigious UK employer!)

8. Talk to your careers team about what reasonable adjustments may mean for you. Is it rest breaks? Screen-reader software? Flexible hours? Home working? Wheelchair access? Low-light levels in a room? Quiet spaces to withdraw to? Each person, even with the same condition can require different adjustments.

Got questions and want to learn more? We have 3 available dates for our evening online workshops (27 Nov, 12 Dec, 17 Jan). To learn more about employer perspectives of disability disclosure, have your questions answered and to learn more about Change100 internships, visit https://goo.gl/az7gd9.

Change100 is the paid summer internship programme designed to bring together leading employers with talented students and graduates with disabilities and long-term health conditions. The programme aims to remove barriers experienced by disabled people in the workplace, to allow them to achieve their potential. You will have the opportunity to join a leading organisation and gain the experience, confidence, networks and skills necessary to accelerate your career.

In 2017, we partnered with a range of prestigious organisations to offer internship opportunities to around 140 students and recent graduates. Over the last 4 years Change100 students have already made their mark with leading employers including ArupBBC, BBSRC, Barclays, Bevan Brittan, Centrica, the Department of Health, the Department for International Development, Experian, the Heritage Lottery Fund, Interserve, Lloyds Banking Group, Medical Research Council, Swiss Re, Taylor Wimpey, Thomson Reuters and Wall to Wall.

Something for nothing? Why The OR Society visited USW

This week I had the chance to visit yet another university – one I visited only a few weeks earlier.

The reason for the second visit was similar to the first; to promote the opportunities within Operational Research (OR) and raise awareness of the careers in it. However, the difference was that rather than speaking to lecturers and alumni, I was speaking to current undergraduate students.

Anyone studying a STEM subject, so physics, chemistry, maths, engineering, computer science, accounting etc. (the list goes on) is eligible for FREE student membership of The OR Society. And so I was there, in full force along with my white and red company banner and tablecloth, highlighting that something for nothing (i.e. FREE) was a good thing!

Everyone likes freebies. Whether it’s pens you get at a career fair or something a little more exciting (I once got given a mug full of sweets – that was great) most people don’t say no! And when it comes to USEFUL freebies, there’s no good reason to pass.

With The OR Society, our student membership offers you access to all our journals (those things with the latest research in you tend to find in libraries), our monthly magazine (full of non-technical information and useful insights) as well as our quarterly IMPACT magazine, which features case studies from recent projects that are easy to read.


And if that wasn’t enough, alongside this, you get the opportunity for accreditation (fancy having some letters after your name?), discounts on training and conferences and of course, the opportunity to part of the OR community. Sounds good to me right?


I was based in the Library on the Treforest campus, handing out leaflets, flyers and of course free pens. I spoke to accounting students, business students, science students and lots more! Questions included where you could work, how much you get paid and of course, what it involved. I answered all these questions and more. I also chatted about the special interest groups and regional groups we run – the regional group in particular (called SWORDS) meet up a good few times a year in South Wales (usually Cardiff or somewhere similar). Penny Holborn, who is a lecturer at USW heads up the regional group and if you haven’t met her before, she’s a friendly face on campus who will happily chat to you about all things OR!

Anyone studying a STEM subject, so physics, chemistry, maths, engineering, computer science, accounting etc. (the list goes on) is eligible for FREE student membership of The OR Society.

It was a great day and I really enjoyed meeting lots of different students. If you didn’t get the chance to chat to us though, we’re happy to hear from you anytime! Drop me a line (schools@theorsociety.com), search out Penny, or read more on our blog (http://orinschools.blogspot.co.uk/). Alternatively, if we’ve sold it to you already (technically student membership doesn’t cost you a penny so I’m not sure that’s actually called selling), sign up online (http://www.theorsociety.com/Pages/Membership/BenefitsStudent.aspx).



How to build up evidence of your work and skills for an interview

When it comes to job interviews, one of the most important factors is being able to persuade the employer that you have the appropriate skills and experience to be a good candidate for the job. As a result, it’s good practice to draw together as much physical evidence of relevant previous work as possible.

At its simplest level, this is just a case of listing out your past employment to demonstrate your capabilities. However, the difficulty for students and recent graduate is that you may not have a great deal of job experience, so you’re going to need to put in a little effort now to give you a better chance of landing a job in the future.

blocksHere are some tips on building up you evidence stockpile:

Write for your chosen profession

Whether you want to be a games developer, lawyer, music journalist or particle physicist, getting something published that you’ve written for your industry is a good way of demonstrating your knowledge and interest. There is a wide range of publications for every industry and you’ll be surprised how many of them would be happy to feature your thoughts, ideas or stories.

Start by creating a good list of possible publications and hunt down the contact details, which are usually on the contact us page of the website. It’s important to get a good idea of what the publication features before coming up with your own idea for what to write about. Once you have this, you can then craft a request to your contact at the publication, explaining your idea and why it would make for a good addition to the publication. You can’t expect every request to come back with a positive result, but it’s important to keep persevering to get your work published.

Work experience

This might be a no-brainer, but it’s easy to pass over until the last minute, so try to take some time during the summer to build up your work experience tally. Not only will it give you real experience, but it will also give you an excellent opportunity to get evidence for the work you’ve done and skills you’ve got. Try to think of your time during work experience from this standpoint and keep copies of anything that you’re proud of. It might be a good idea to ask the company if it’s happy for you to do this as a courtesy, but most will just want to help you as much as possible. If your work gets featured online while you’re doing work experience, make sure you keep a record of the URLs to reference during interviews.

Volunteer work

This is very similar to work experience, but it could give you a bit more flexibility in terms of what you do and the kind of evidence you can build up. Approaching charities, clubs, events and organisations with an offer to do something that relates to the job you eventually want to get is another great way to build up evidence. If you want to be in marketing, offer to help with their promotional activity; if you want to be a designer, offer to create a poster or flyer; if you want to be a biologist, offer to go in to do a talk on a chosen subject that might be of interest to the people they support etc. Again, keep a record of everything that you do and refer to it in interviews when you’re trying to take your first steps in the working world.

Get creative

If you’ve already ticked off a number of these, you can take things to the next level by adding video to your evidence log. With smartphones, it’s easier than ever to film yourself or others talking knowledgably about your industry. And with YouTube you can easily post these to the masses and share on social media. It’s not going to be for everyone, but if you’re a confident speaker and you’ve got subjects you’re passionate about then it could be a creative way to evidence your interest and understanding of your industry.

Try to be entertaining, interesting and engaging while filming and don’t forget that if you’re not happy with the initial results, you can always just do another take to get it right.

Create a portfolio

This can either be online or a physical portfolio of your work, but it will act as a strong talking point for your interview. It comes in handy when asked questions about how you might tackle a particular situation, providing you with tangible examples of what you’ve done in the past.

Your portfolio can include any written work you’ve had published for your industry, or if you work in the creative sector then you can include design work, film, apps, games, websites etc. that you’ve worked on in the past.

It’s important to structure your portfolio so that you can easily refer to items without scrambling around, so a tabbed reference could be an option to make it easy to find something specific when you’re being interviewed.

Gerard Harris is the editor of entertainment news and reviews magazine, Tuppence, which has developed a flexible work experience programme to allow budding writers and designers to gain experience, a reference and an online portfolio to evidence their work. Over the last 15 years, Gerard has worked in the digital sector for fashion companies like Office Shoes and UNIQLO, as well as time at other big brands, including Odeon, RAC and Ford.


Why project management is an excellent career choice for graduates

Projects take place in every industry around the world. Think of all the construction projects you see in cities, or of the marketing projects that happen whenever a new product is released.

The world thrives on projects and this means there will always be a need for project managers. Read on to find out what this role entails, why to enter the field and how to get your foot in the door!

What is a project manager?

Project managers are responsible for the day-to-day running of projects. They are results-driven and goal-orientated creatures with a knack for organisation, leadership and communicating effectively.

A typical project manager will be involved in:

  • Planning the project
  • Budgeting
  • Organising and motivating the project team
  • Setting deadlines and delegating work
  • Carrying out risk and quality assessments
  • Working with stakeholders
  • Solving problems as they arise
  • Ensuring project goals are achieved
  • Delivering the project on time

This is not a job for shrinking violets! Project managers are strong leaders who are capable of organising and motivating people. You must therefore be a team player with an eye for spotting risks and solving problems. It can be a challenging job, especially when deadlines loom or things go wrong, so being able to cope with pressure is essential.

Why be a project manager?

Here are our top reasons to choose a project management career:

  • Project managers are required in every industry and sector. It is true that sectors such as IT and engineering are major ‘project’ sectors. However, every industry performs projects, so creative and humanities graduates are welcome too!
  • Because projects happen worldwide, project managers often get to travel and work with a variety of different people.
  • As every industry requires project managers, this means there are lots of jobs out there. Project managers will always be in demand and this won’t change any time soon. Projects will always exist.
  • Salaries are excellent. Project managers in the UK earn on average £40-£50k. Depending on the industry and how much experience you have, this salary can reach quite a height.
  • Job satisfaction is huge! Being part of a project, watching everything come together successfully and working in a team are all some of the highlights of this career.

How to kick-start a graduate project manager career

Much like any other job, landing a role as a project manager requires experience and qualifications. Here are our top tips for entering the world of project management:

  • Which sector do you want to work in? Many graduates use their current degree as a starting point. However, you can also complete further study after graduation in the form of a PgDip or master’s degree in project management. Bear in mind that if you want to manage projects in a very technical field such as engineering, finance or IT, it is normally essential that you have a degree in one of those subjects.
  • Work experience is vital. Try volunteering or contacting companies directly to see if you can do work experience with them. If you have chosen the PgDip or master’s route, work placements are often included as part of the course.
  • Try getting a project administrator or project support role. These entry level positions give you valuable experience working alongside a project manager on actual projects. Getting an entry level job like this will make it much easier for you to progress onto a managerial role, either at the same company or elsewhere.
  • You might see qualifications such as PRINCE2® or AgilePM® mentioned in job specifications. PRINCE2 is a project management methodology. Agile is an ‘umbrella’ term encompassing many different approaches to delivering software. Many employers insist you gain PRINCE2 or Agile certification, because they will be used on the project. It is therefore a good idea to gain at least an entry level qualification in PRINCE2 or Agile, depending on what your chosen sector requires.

5 Great Reasons to Volunteer Abroad

Are your feet itching with insufferable wanderlust? Is your heart longing to do something outside of the norm?  Do you want your next experience abroad to be a step outside of your comfort zone?

Volunteering abroad can become a powerful platform to do all of the above more. It facilitates meaningful cultural exchange between the local community and the volunteer, turning what would have been a normal holiday overseas, into something extraordinary.

Here are our top 5 reasons why you should ready yourself to make an impact and get out into the world to volunteer!


Travel and Cultural Immersion

The most apparent reason. Volunteering abroad gives you a great opportunity to explore global environments in a truly unique way. As a volunteer, you will be able to see a side of that country that typical tourists almost always miss.  You will become truly immersed in different local cultures whilst also making an impact.

Volunteering with Travel Teacher means you get to do and see things that are truly unique. You will be living with sensitive communities and will have many life changing moments that will provide a lifetime of memories.  Picture yourself living inside a local village on the Coral Coast of Fiji, contributing towards the education of young people in The Cook Islands, assisting with a save the beach initiative in The Maldives or helping to plant trees for sustainable growth in India.  These unique experiences will change the way you see and travel the world!

Develop vital transferable skills

Volunteering is a wonderful and proven way to boost your own transferable skills such as confidence, teamwork and communication. It also provides substance for a high quality CV. With competition for jobs becoming fiercer and fiercer, employers are looking for someone who stands out form the crowd. International travel, cultural exchange, self-confidence and practical professional experience certainly combine to offer this.  So at the end of the day, a beautiful synergy has taken place between you and the community.

Some volunteering programs even go a step further than that. Travel Teacher offers participants the opportunity to gain an industry recognized teaching qualification. Our experiences will provide you with a foothold into your chosen career pathway.


Develop lifelong friendships

It is not uncommon for volunteers to meet their new travel buddy or best friend for life while on project. In fact, it is almost expected. Volunteers are all there for one reason – to do good and help change the world. This shared passion is only intensified as you bond over your experience on the project. Your fellow volunteers will be there for the highs, the lows, and everything in between. And by the time your stay is up, you will have a whole group of people from all corners of the earth to call friends.

Help others in need

Amidst the beauty of our partnered destinations, the spectacular beaches and coral reefs: a magnificent string of islands floating peacefully in the ocean, there are also impoverished rural populations who as yet have not been able to benefit from its strong tourist trade.  As a volunteer on work placement with Travel Teacher your contribution can assist in helping the young people have a brighter future.

Broaden your horizons

Volunteering helps you discover what you really need to be happy, and to appreciate what you took for granted back home. Volunteering gives you the chance to reflect on your role in the world and motivate you to continue being the difference.

Think of volunteering abroad like the cupboard to Narnia, a door to see a country through the eyes of the locals. It is a chance to experience what their lives are like on a day-to-day basis, get to grips with the problems they are facing and how you are a part of the solution. Experiencing this rich cultural immersion changes you as a person. As you become apart of this new community, you are slowly, but surely, transformed into a Global Citizen.

So what are you waiting for?! Book that plane ticket and start travelling responsibly!
