Solent University, Southampton
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 used to get advice from the careers service and they were very helpful while I was at uni. However, I've not had much help since graduating and find it difficult to even get a reply sometimes."
"I subscribed to my university's service that sends me offers of graduate jobs. Unfortunately, employers tend to require a lot of experience these days and I wish my course had offered more work experience. They helped us with CVs and applications but I also think more could have been done here too."
"There are modules to help prepare for careers and assist with the building of portfolios and CVs so it's really good. There are employability fairs too."
"The teachers have backgrounds in their subject areas and know a lot of employers. They give us classes just to improve our CVs and cover letters and to know what to do and what to prepare to get a job."
