In a few words
"The careers services are amazing at Heriot Watt and they really engage and keep you informed about jobs and opportunities. It was because of the Heriot Watt careers services that I got a job at a large LA services company as an intern, where I have now been offered a full-time job. The recruitment fairs aren't the best with very few employers attending. However, I have found that this a common thing in Scotland with most employers attending the annual fair in Glasgow."
