The service provided by the careers consultants definitely helped me to improve my chances of landing a job after graduation
Graduation date: 2013
What type of careers guidance did you come in for?
CV check/ Mock Interview
Do you think the careers guidance or mock interview helped you with your application / interview?
During my time at City I met with several careers consultants who helped me to improve my CV. I gained a lot from these meetings. The service provided by the team definitely helped me to improve my chances of landing a job after graduation. I also attended a mock interview just before a job interview to brush up on my answers and to put me at ease. I later accepted a role at Nationwide Building Society Head Office in the Treasury Financial Reporting Department as an Accounting Technician, whilst studying to achieve the ACCA qualification funded by Nationwide.
What advice do you have for other students?
The staff at the Careers Service is very friendly and welcoming. However they can only help to a certain point, as it is up to applicants to put in the hard work of targeting applications to firms.
