Making use of Careers, Employability and Skills
Career Guidance Appointments
Skills for Success - Assessment Centre Prep
Career Guidance Appointments are very useful and worthwhile for CV and Cover Letter help in order to get advice. Careers Fairs, Study Tours and Employer Events are great for finding out more information about the opportunities and employers available whilst having the chance to network.
Any advice for other Queen's students?
