Do F1 teams take on university graduates with no experience?
Looking through normal job pages for Motorsport and F1 in particular it often seems that there is no way into the industry without prior experience in racing. A problem that it hard to solve.
It’s not always the case however, and it’s important to keep your eyes open as much as possible so that if an opportunity is advertised then you are ready to pounce.
To prove the point I wanted to write this short post today to highlight that the Caterham F1 team is looking for a number of engineering graduates for its team. No prior experience is necessary.
If I were 21 again and looking to get into racing then I would be looking at this like gold dust. A golden opportunity to get your foot in the door.
You had better be quick though, applications close on September 12th 2014. Good luck !
