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

"I got great help with my CV and other advice."
"There is always something hosted by the university to help you with your future career."
"The careers service is excellent. They look over CVs, cover letters and personal statements. They also offer practise interviews and provide you with good feedback on your performance. There could be more on-campus recruitment activity or more links with industries, though."
"I had help with my CV and an internship search."
"I found something of a lack of support with obtaining industrial placements."
"I think this is reasonably good. Support is available through the careers service if you want it."
"The careers service hasn't been very useful for me, but many events on campus have been!"
"The careers service is amazing. However, you do need to put in extra work yourself. Students tend to forget that soft skills are as important as the degree."
