"Having my dream internship cancelled due to COVID-19 this summer, I was very disappointed and afraid that it would hurt my chances of getting a new grad role. I have attended many sessions you organized and they made me much more confident in my future job search."

"I have attended a few sessions from the URx Talent Development Program and I gained a lot of valuable knowledge about different companies' cultures. I also improved my resume, job searching strategies, and interview skills. I would highly recommend it to anyone who's looking to upskill themselves!"
