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 careers service helped me to tailor my CV and apply for the positions that I want to work in. Currently, I have a work experience role and I thoroughly aim to grow and become a valuable team member within this company."
"There are several alumni days organised by the department."
"The careers service was not very helpful when I applied for my Masters but does have some other useful services. The course itself has several coursework modules aimed at real world research."
"There's a specific course just on employability at the very beginning of the second year that guided us on our way to become more employable at the right time. There are also LinkedIn workshops and support on how to do a profile as well as workshops for CV writing and one-to-one meetings to review CVs."
"Advice is great, especially for English careers. They are constantly emailing us about internship opportunities and careers days to help us decide our future."
"Job fairs are minimal compared to my old university."
"Careers and employability is much more targeted to 2nd and 3rd year students but provides excellent opportunities and placements."
