News has reached me of quite a nifty offer from Coca Cola. They are currently recruiting for graduate sales reps and to support that activity they are holding a graduate open day where you can find out more about what it’s like working at Coca Cola Enterprises and take advantage of some assessment centre practice sessions. A great combination.
When is it taking place? On July 25th at their office in Poyle, Slough. To sign up you need to go to www.cokecce.com/careers and apply for the role called June 2011 Graduate Sales Representative – South East Region. Use the Job Search box on the right hand of the page and the keyword search.

I think this is a fantastic idea on the employer’s side. It’s an example of a company really meeting you as a potential employee half way. An opportunity to see if there’s a fit for both sides before either of you decide to proceed further. I’d welcome more of this from employers though the fact it’s going to be held on a Saturday shows the time pressures many employers are under during the working week.
