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.
"The unique 'world of work' certificates are integrated into uni so you get prepared for interviews and to enter a working environment."
"The support I have had so far has been good, guidance has been available from the start."
"We take part in 'world of work', which prepares us for future careers. The uni often holds careers fairs and has strong ties with companies such as Aldi."
"LJMU do push students to get in contact with employers to try and get their foot in the door. We also have careers days and site visits."
"The careers service is great. They help you to write a CV, will look over it for you and you can do a 'world of work' certificate alongside your degree."
"The 'world of work' centre at LJMU offers a variety of services including interview prep, CV prep and a huge amount of jobs/placements."
"I didn't find the careers service very helpful. I felt as though the person I saw wanted me to pursue their ideas and not my own. It was frustrating and hard to find out what other useful things I could do for my CV etc."
"There's good careers advice if you seek it out."
"The careers centre is more helpful for the people from big and popular courses. When the course is small, they cannot do as much and don't have the same level of connections in the industry to help us get a job. That said, they're very helpful with CV support and preparation for interviews etc."
