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've had huge help from the careers service and they couldn't have supported me more. They helped me to prepare for interviews and get my CV ready for applications."
"The careers services aren't widely promoted apart from a weekly email."
"We are encouraged to do a placement on my course. I understand that my coursemates are enjoying theirs for the most part."
"I'm always getting emails about job offers and things."
"There is plenty of support in the form of receiving advice on your CV and on applying for part-time jobs. Placements are left to you while advice and guidance is on hand in each school with your placement officers who can help. I have been to a few recruitment days on campus and the focus tends to be on summer work. There's a range of opportunities including some paid and some voluntary."
"I've had help in getting a placement so I think it's good and useful."
"There have been a lot of careers fairs at my university and I've been advised on all the different posts I could get with my degree, which was a lot more than I first thought. Some of the courses were really helpful and equipped us with skills and information that current employers value. I believe that this is a big part of the reason why I got my current job."
"There could be more information about the kinds of jobs that are available in my sector."
