Aston University, Birmingham
Please comment on the support you’ve had from the careers services, the type of employers that present and recruit on campus, the effectiveness of the alumni network, as well as fairs and on-campus recruitment activity.
"Careers services are always available to book appointments with. There are lots of fairs and on-campus recruitment for many different types of employers but I haven't heard much about the alumni network."
"There are many lectures on careers so you get enough information. Also, you can book an appointment with the career team as they're more than happy to help."
"I managed to get a good work placement through uni."
"We have a very strong careers service who actively help you look for a placement."
"I regularly receive emails about jobs from potential employers and opportunities on campus. There are also fairs where employers can come in to talk about jobs and people who take a look at CVs and help to improve them. I have also had the chance to interact with older students who have made me aware of job opportunities and the helpfulness of the placement year available from the university."
"There's a CV assignment that you need to complete and the feedback you receive really helps with writing your final version."
"The careers service actively pushes you to gain experience."
"The placement year helps with your graduate employability and the university has an amazing team to help you find placements and jobs. They always get employers on campus for you to meet and will support you with CVs and do mock interviews. It's a really quality service."
"Careers services have helped me with interviews and CV prep."
"For me, lecturers have actually been more helpful with knowledge of the workplace etc than the careers service."
"There have been placements and careers support offered."
