    I graduate in May and I am currently completing an application job for a graduate job starting in September. In between this time i will be going to USA.

    There is a section that asks to state anything that will 'aid you application' - is it ok to say that I will be travelling America for 4 weeks to experience a different culture'?

    Or does that sound cheesy lol? The company I am applying to are big in USA and this is why i think it might be good.


    I would definitively put it in your application, gives your application more personality and shows you're open to new experiences etc. But maybe phrase it a little differently, it sounds a bit cliché and and doesn't give the employer any idea of what you are like. I would explain more why you are going and what part of American culture you'd like to see.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
