University student wins national competition
A second year student at the University of Aberdeen will today be presented with a laptop computer as winner of first prize in a national competition organised by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA).
Representatives from CIMA will join colleagues from the Institute of Chartered Accountants (ICS) and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) at a student career seminar organised today (Wednesday April 24th) by the University of Aberdeen's Careers and Appointments Service.
Shelley Anne Kay, a second year student of Zoology, entered the CIMA competition on their website earlier this year. Shelley said; "I am delighted to have won the imac. I have always entered competitions like this, but have never expected to win! Although studying zoology - a subject I really enjoy - I'm looking at a variety of career options, including accountancy."
The University of Aberdeen Careers and Appointments Service was one of the first to be established in the UK and regularly organises events which help to bring students and employers together. The two most prominent events are the Careers and Information Fair in November and the North of Scotland Recruitment Fair on May 15th 2002.
