University of Northampton
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.
"They gave us a lot of opportunities to gain experience outside of university at different events with different companies."
"There are lots of placements available."
"They have a careers office on campus that provides a variety of events you can take part in and I also get emails about vacancies within the area."
"People (including famous writers and editors) have come to talk to us about jobs and careers."
"The university runs a regular employability fair and has an employability week every year. They also do a 'subject futures week' for any creative courses that take place on Avenue Campus. There are always people who work within the university available to talk to about future jobs and careers."
"My placement has been amazing and really gave me a feeling for the real world of work."
"We have had a two-hour session on possible jobs and how to look for them. Apart from that, I don't think there has been much more. There were career fairs but there wasn't much to prepare you for a less mainstream job."
