(based on ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"Careers services do many events and send a lot of useful information. The employability week is a brilliant initiative. The fairs are also good, there are loads of employers, but mostly UK/US/Canadian-based etc. I wish employers from more exotic/unusual places were represented too."
