Human Recognition Systems (HRS) was thrilled when digital industry bible, New Media Age chose one of our graduate trainees to launch their new graduate section about favourite apps.
Charlotte Kelsey, a business analyst and one of the first graduates on the HRS graduate programme, (which launched in September 2010), selected her favourite Blackberry and iPod applications with other graduates and fans of the New Media Age website.
“I use apps that are useful to me and help me out with things that I enjoy doing on a daily basis,” said Charlotte, who studied Interactive System Design at the University of Manchester.
“I've been using the running application only since I started training for a marathon, so that's more of an application for the moment. However, I use the budget application every week and will continue to do so because it's handy for my every day life.
“The grad section on NMA is a great place to mine for information so I was really pleased to be selected to help them launch a section that would really appeal to people like me.”
“We chose Charlotte to launch the feature as she selected wide range of apps that she uses for both work and play,” said New Media Age recruitment development manager, William Jones.
“It was interesting to see how a busy graduate like Charlotte working in a fast paced industry uses her smartphone to maintain her professional networks, as well as managing her social life.”
The NMA graduates section offers information about how to get into the digital industry for students and graduates who are studying or have an interest in digital media.
“We aim to provide advice from students themselves and young people already working in the industry, as well as all the latest news, editorial opinion and jobs from nma.co.uk,” said William.
HRS' graduate scheme is also running in 2011 and will start in early September. There will be two graduate programmes: two places on 'business' for those interested in project management, sales and marketing and other areas of business and two places again on the 'technical programme' for those with a real passion for software development and technology.
