University of Brighton
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.
"There are regular career fairs and the recruitment opportunities on campus are excellent."
"We've had career fairs every year, which help to give us ideas. However, I think more attention should be given to psychology and social sciences."
"There are websites you can sign up for that help you after graduation. There are also services that help you to look for internships and placements. I signed up for these at the freshers' fair at the beginning of term."
"Lots of fairs and help writing CVs on a university site that they taught us to use. Once finished, you can put it public for potential employers to read. On my course they are helpful in suggesting places to volunteer and apply for part time jobs. They've been very supportive throughout the whole process."
"At the moment I am seeking a work placement and have been given great assistance from the careers services as they helped me to arrange my CV to make it more suitable for what I'm after."
"There have been many opportunities to get support from the careers services in pharmacy, such as notifying us about conferences and putting on fairs to see what's out there."
"They have communicated opportunities about work experience quite well. They're always happy to give careers advice to students."
"I'm still unsure of my career path but practical learning makes me feel prepared for the working environment. I have spoken to the careers advice service and they often provide fairs. I've also had opportunities to volunteer. We get lots of guest lecturers from high up so it's good to hear from them. There are lots of job opportunities on campus and you can sign up to the careers newsletter for vacancies."
"They encourage us to apply for internships all the time. I've also attended a few workshops regarding placements and writing cover letters and CVs."
"I want to be a teacher when I leave university and I am always getting updates on teaching events or postgraduate education events. There are many resources available to prepare me."
