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

"The careers service is well-established but quite muted as the only contact they have with students is via email."
"On campus recruitment tells us that QMUL students are sought after because of how independent the studies are."
"I got my first part-time job from the careers and advice department."
"I've had a great experience with the careers advisors at Queen Mary including CV help and letting me participate in the careers taster scheme."
"The careers service was very helpful with CV reviewing and mock interviews but I didn't get much from the alumni network."
"The careers department isn't great when it comes to science advice and services after university in my personal experience."
"My university organises many career fairs, both general and also specific to degrees. Professionals have come in and discussed their jobs and how they got them. We have also had access to professional CVs."
"Our careers centre is extremely well-prepared to handle all of the numerous requests law students approach them with. Very satisfied."
"There are many career fairs that are specific to certain schools so I can't attend them. They can help you on specific paths but aren't as good at general advice, a career advisor once told me to come back when I've decided on what job I want to do."
"There should have been more internship opportunities and guidance for applying. We're in an ideal location for them to help with internships in the City."
