Here’s how some of you are already benefiting from the hubs
'Having the promo stands in the LRCs is a great way to integrate the Careers service into the daily lives of students, increasing awareness; allowing students to reach out for support and guidance with regards to the plethora of services available to them throughout their studies and beyond!'

'The career stands across the LRCs and schools are very influential in bridging the gap between students and the careers service. Through speaking to students at the stands I’ve learned that a lot of the time students wish to seek career advice or would like to know about upcoming career events that they may benefit from attending, but due to their busy schedules, they unfortunately don’t get the chance to pursue these opportunities. The fact that the stands are staffed by students allows everyone to feel more relaxed and open when bringing up subject matter they are not familiar with. The stands feel very valuable for students that want to start looking into part-time and full-time career possibilities.'
