Help with applications and interviews

The Spring Term is often a busy time for students making job and course applications and attending interviews. We can help with the whole recruitment process of:

  • Applications
  • Interviews
  • Assessment centres
  • Aptitude tests.

We run workshops, courses and presentations about the different stages. We also have resources in the Information Room and on the website at

Finally, if you need advice on any aspect of the process, come and speak to one of the Information Team at the enquiry desk in the Careers Service. If you have a more specific enquiry, book a careers appointment or book a CV review, if you want someone to look over your CV.

Whatever stage you’re at, whatever your year of study, check out how we can help by visiting or calling into the Careers Service near Campus Central car park.
