Applications for the 2013 Warwick Advantage and Global Advantage Awards are open - you've got until 13 March 2013 to get your application in.
The Awards provide a great opportunity for current students to reflect on and capture their unique skills in preparation for employer application forms and interviews. Applications are welcomed from home & international students, and from both undergraduate and postgraduate students. There are two types of awards:
Warwick Advantage Awards
Advantage Awards provide University recognition and reward for the time and effort that students put into societies, sports clubs, campaigns, committees, volunteering, events and everything else that isn't degree-related (including work experience and the Undergraduate Research Scholarship Scheme).
The Warwick Advantage Gold Award not only gave me the skills and confidence to succeed, but my current employer cited it as the clinching factor in their final decision in offering me a job. Twelve months after their original job offer I progressed to a managerial position with the world’s leading sport for development charity."

Students who win a Gold Global Advantage Award will have the opportunity to be selected to attend a One Young World summit in Johannesburg in October this year.
Deadline for both awards: Wednesday 13 March 2013
