University of Sussex
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.
"The careers advisers are very helpful and are always doing events on campus."
"There are job fairs once a year as well as an employability service that provides weekly sessions on preparing students with work skills."
"There are at least two career fairs per year, which are usually rather early in the day and can sometimes clash with lectures. Career events with alumni or workshops are offered at some point during the Spring term and help a lot with getting a better idea of what one can do after graduating. Careers advisers also help students during term time if they have questions concerning their CV, general applications or even interviews. It's great!"
"There are a lot of workshops provided by the careers centre and appointments with advisers are available when booked."
"The careers and employability centre is well stocked with friendly and knowledgeable staff. Appointments or drop-in options are available and we have a careers fair at the Amex Stadium each November with lots of prospective employers. Many careers events and study help events are held throughout the year on campus."
"Advisers are regularly available at the library to talk to and help you with finding a career."
"I have had support for getting jobs through networking events such as talks. The careers fairs have been a great help and the careers services in the library were also useful."
"I have learned a lot more than I expected and was given many opportunities to meet with alumni."
"The careers services have checked my CV and organised alumni events that have given me a few ideas."
"There are many fairs etc. It's good if you know what you're looking for but can be difficult if you're undecided on your career choice."
