Careers services

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.

2016

"I've not had much support if I'm honest. They sort of just let you get on with it once you graduate, especially from a humanities degree. You have to have a clear sense of what you want to do midway through your degree or they will struggle to give you advice. They have an email alerts system that alerts graduates of jobs available in the area local to the university though."
"My course offered fairs to get in contact with recruiters."
"The careers service was very beneficial and they were knowledgeable about many different career paths and postgraduate courses."
"They have a lot of events and send out emails often."
"There's a really good job shop here."
"I had great support when I wanted help working on my CV."
"I've had a few lectures and workshops but, otherwise, there's not that much interaction with the careers service."
"I've had very little support with only a couple of classes from the careers adviser."
"It's not great as it's mostly opportunities in Keele's local area. The internships and apprenticeships are mostly in jobs that are for quite narrow interests."
"Societies have helped in my career goals and, to a lesser extent, the careers service have too. However, the careers service seem to focus more on specific careers rather than wider job skills."
