University of Portsmouth
In a few words
"Your course alone does not do everything to prepare you for a career. However, non-academic activities you take on really propel you and develop your skills to get into your desired field. Purple Door (our careers advisors) help you in ways you might not think are available: from reviewing your CV to offering placements in India and China! A large variety of employers recruit on campus. It can be a bit overwhelming actually, but there are opportunities to develop in things you like doing, and to experiment in different fields. Recruitment and opportunities are not course specific. The alumni network encourages you to have the confidence to apply for something regardless of whether you get a reply or not. They detail effective strategies and methods that will help you get the most out of your uni experience. Placement fairs, recruitment fairs, and volunteering fairs are held at the beginning of each term; the information and opportunities offered are available from Purple Door all year round and after you graduate."
