"I always dreamt of one day getting a placement at Red Bull Racing F1. I had a chat with the placement unit at our University which have years of experience in this sort of field. I started developing my CV really early on and I was able to get it checked by the placement unit who gave me invaluable advice as well as with my cover letter and a mock interview and everything went great. I was offered my dream job becoming a Mechanical Design Engineer ICE"
