University of Kent
8.2 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 99 ratings in 2017)
In a few words
"There's almost always something going on related to careers and future employment. The careers service is run every day and has a drop-in CV help session, which is fantastic! Kent's online CV help actually helped my mum update her CV and we believe she landed her latest job because of it! We have a JobShop as well that advertises full and part time work in and around Canterbury as well as jobs on campus. A massive recruitment fair is held every year for culinary jobs on campus. That's a fun process to take part in as you gain a few friends as well as some important interview experience."
