Why we’re doing it

Here at Adzuna, we are well aware of the many challenges and worries students are constantly faced with. From being overloaded with seemingly never-ending piles of assignments, to finding relevant work experience – we know it’s tough. The good news is, that the daunting transition from college life to work life may have just gotten unbelievably easy.
