In a few words
"I have never had to use the careers services but they often send general emails with ideas, tips and opportunities on how to better your CV or be outstanding in an interview, for example. In terms of employers on campus, there is a union-run careers fair every year that attracts a lot of large and small enterprises alike. Each school will normally have a specific careers fair as well, so the law school will have a law fair and invite lots of law firms and other businesses that want to hire people with a legal degree. Finally, there are often large businesses at the freshers' fair at the start of term that offer advice to new students."
