Sheffield Hallam University
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.
"I got my first job through a second-year placement fair."
"I have had help from lots of fairs in applying for jobs and interview techniques to help me in the future."
"I have had discussions and meetings with the careers service. They've helped me by holding workshops and mock interviews."
"There is an employability centre where students can go and ask for advice in terms of jobs and CV help. They also help with improving your LinkedIn page. There are often graduate fairs and alumni events at the end of the year that help with networking too."
"The careers service are always there to help if you want to book an appointment and the university often recruits employers to give talks and attend fairs. The alumni network is great."
"The careers team have been fantastic and even helped me secure a placement year at Microsoft."
"You can book appointments with careers advisers any time you want. We've had CV and covering letter lessons and there are good recruitment days to help you get a part-time job alongside studies."
"There are lots of fairs advertised in order to help you get a job. The careers service provides a lot of help with finding a job or working on your CV etc. We do practical modules on my course that relate to the experiences that you may come across when you later get a job."
"The careers services are very helpful and enthusiastic but there are not many employers at the careers fair's events."
"Every kind of support is offered at Hallam from practice interviews to small meetings and discussing applications. The staff really care and it's great for networking as there are lectures from organisations and chances to meet recruiters on a regular basis."
