What have we done with your feedback? These are some of the actions we've taken in the past year:
You said you wanted more multi-media content and something a bit livelier. All Cardiff Metropolitan University students now have access 24/7 to Careers e-module accessable via your Blackboard course list which is an interactive resource written by CDS staff that covers all aspects of career development and includes video, web links and lots of activities to help you along your way.
Job Seeking Support
Some students said they didn't have time to focus on job seeking in the latter part of their final year. We emphasise the fact that we do offer an ongoing graduate support service after graduation and publicise this during graduation days. We're also working with academic staff to build a lot more careers education into the curriculum, particularly in the penultimate year of the course, so you have longer to get yourself prepared.
We asked you for your comments on your experiences in guidance interviews. Over the past two years 100% of respondents said they would recommend us to a friend and there were lots of comments about friendly, helpful advisers who made them feel more confident about their future. Some suggestions you have made:
- You said you would like us to offer interviews in the evenings. We can't stay open late every night, but we will respond to individual requests for evening interviews - just call.
- You said you wanted more information about jobs and employers. We now publish all our vacancies online and have expanded our e-resources to cover more employer directories and vacancy sites. See the right hand link on this page for Current Vacancies and also register with GO Wales for access to vacancies, work placements and work experience opportunities. We also put many of our best jobs and events on Facebook and Twitter so you don't miss out on them.
We keep improving this all the time and are trying to keep it current and useful to you. Please keep feeding back suggestions - we can't always do everything you want, but we'll do our best. This is your service.
