Key features include:
- Jobonline search facility – current vacancies advertised through The Careers Group, searchable by part-time/ full-time, sector or keywords.
- Events – upcoming events for graduates to meet employers and find out more about their companies.
- ‘Careers Tagged’ (found under ‘Advice and Resources’ in the main menu)- websites, info sheets, relevant books, etc. relating to all aspects of job hunting.
These are just a few of the website’s highlights, but there are many others, so if you’re struggling to give your job search direction it’s definitely a site worth checking out.
