Babatunde Adetoye graduated this year with MA Human Resource and Employment Management at Guildhall Faculty of Business Law. Babatunde wanted to share his amazing experience he had while studying. We caught up with him for a quick question answer session.  

What is your current role/business and what does it involve? 

Currently I am the CEO of Talent & Trends. My business supports individuals and organisations to discover, develop and optimally deploy people's potential for maximum results.

How has your course at London Met helped you in the world of work? 

I developed the skills necessary to conduct a successful research and present to decision-makers, as I now regularly have to present to my clients.

What has been your highlight at London Met?

I would have to say I had many highlights but the main one was my dissertation; it was a piece of consultation for the Placement & Employability Unit of the Faculty, it investigated the views of the students on the role of the careers services in helping them acquire employability skills. The research gathered that the majority of students think that the careers services are there only to help them towards graduation when they will need to write CVs and prepared for interviews. Recommendations were presented to the PEU on how to engage with the students.

Do you have any tips for current students or graduates? 

  • When studying at University remember your grades and deadlines are imperative, but also is taking note of who you are becoming and what skills you are developing. 
  • What you are able to get out of any institution of learning, is to a large extent dependent on the demand you place on all the available resources; if you are not hungry, you can’t be fed.
