I started using the Careers Service as part of the Gold Award. Through this I went to have a CV check, LinkedIn profile advice and even got to attend a Business and Enterprise event at the Google Campus that was really helpful. I’d never have the opportunity to do things like that without the Careers Service.
From there I got in contact with a member of the Careers team to help me find a placement. It was really quick and a great service. They helped me to find my placement working as a marketing intern with the British Quality Foundation.
I started at a good time and have been able to get involved with different projects like redesigning and branding the website. I’ve learned lots of new skills that have been able to help with my projects at university too.
I’ve now been offered a full-time job here as a marketing executive for once I’ve graduated. There’s no way I would have secured a graduate job during my final year without using the Careers Service and doing a work placement.
