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 very good support from the careers service with my CV, interview techniques and job searches. The admin team were very good also."
"We have regular emails about available vacancies."
"We get a lot of work experience offers due to the location of the university and lecturers do assist with this."
"My course has placements all throughout the three years and they gave us mock interviews at the end of our third year."
"There have been many careers sessions available and there was recently a talk about taking part in paid summer work."
"There are plenty of free careers services and a couple of employer seminars each year. Attendance at these seminars can be lacking sometimes."
"Volunteering opportunities are provided through the job site. Graduate jobs, career fairs, Placements Plaza and CV evaluation are all very helpful."
"There has not been much information on how to get into the career I want or the different career paths I could take. There are a few career fairs throughout the year but not many of them are relevant to law."
"Tutors are available to give advice on how to make your CV more appealing and how to get experience. They are willing to share contacts too, all you need to do is ask."
"I've had lots of recruitment agencies contact me following job fairs and seminars I've attended."
