comments from students who have completed the award

The amount of time put into this is astounding! I actually spoke to friends from other universities who said they wished they had something like this.

I enjoyed the depth of the module. It went far beyond some general tips on how to write a good CV and prepare for an interview. Rather it went in to detail about the whole process of graduate job search from the beginning to the end. It was very instructive .

The module is very, very useful! I really love how it makes you to think about your personality and helps you to identify your strengths and weaknesses.

Comments from students who have completed the award

It really blew my mind with some ideas I’ve never known before, such as portfolio working and working from home. I never thought about obtaining happiness from my work before.

It was so easy, quick and I learned a lot.

You get a really nice certificate!

Without realising, you have finished the course and have already put together a very good CV and covering letter.

It would be mad to apply for a job or attend an interview without doing it!

Before the course I had only a vague idea of my career path and opportunities. Now I am applying for summer internships and know how to effectively sell my skills to a prospective employer and have a much more focused plan for my future.

I recently had a very successful interview largely because I put the advice on the module into practice.
