How we respond to your comments

The table below represents analysis of recent stakeholder Feedback taken (from student, alumni, employer, academic) on our services, and action we have taken as a result.

You said...We did...
 "I'd like to see more workshops that are sector specific"  We have introduced 'The Careers Cafe' - a series of smaller workshops (up to 6 students can attend and the event focusses on different occupational sectors or themes). The 'Careers Cafe' workshops started in October 2014 and usually take place in the Careers Information Room, are very interactive, and are tailored to the students that book. Booking via JobsLive is essential.

  "Let more students know what the Careers Service is for"  During 2013-14 we undertook a complete re-thinking of our image/brand, and as a result developed a very strong visual identity, which we use in the physical location of thae Careers Service, as well as through our marketing and events. We introduced 'CV Pop Ups' and have continued to take our services to the heart of where students are on campus.

  "Perhaps there could be events to promote more unconventional careers"  We have developed a range of 'Focus on.. (an industry sector) weeks. So far, we have focussed on the Environment, Charity and Not for profit, Science Communication & Science Policy. The weeks are a mux of workshops, talks, larger careers fairs, and individual opportunities to have 'Skype chats' with individuals from those sectors. The weeks have been very popular, and a highlight this year was a talk from 'Sky at Night'
 "Subject specific and industry sector information available online" During 2014 we digitised our hard copy careers library, and as a result you can now research occupations and job sectors through the careers website.
