The variety of services and amount of support the Careers Service offer is amazing. I reached out to the careers team from my earliest steps in my job search and they stayed with me to the end. The members of staff offered me valuable advice at every session and built up my courage to go further. Thanks to them, I attended the interview a lot calmer, and it proved to be a success.
