Introduction

Student Feedback : "It's a great opportunity for students to find a job"

"We organise the part-time jobs fair to support our students given the continued financial challenges that students face. We wanted to highlight the range of openings that are available to students in Aberdeen and last year we had over 20 employers recruiting students on the day."

Lorraine Pitman, Careers Consultant

" It is an awesome opportunity for new students "

Student Feedback supports the value of this event. As well as supporting student finances part-time work is an important way in which you can demonstrate your work related skills to a future graduate employer. Research suggests that employers favour applicants who have real work experience when hiring graduates.

The Careers Centre supports students and recent graduates develop their career planning, employability and job search skills to remain competitive in the job market. We can offer you:

  •  Career Advice
  •  CV Consultations
  •  Interview Technique & Practice
  •  Vacancy Sourcing
