You Said We Did:
We need networking tips.
We've added networking resources to our office and online library and we've introduced a networking session to our workshop schedule.
The Booking system for workshops is annoying. I would like to attend lots of them, but they are always full.
We've scrapped the booking system, so now workshops are run on a first come, first served basis. We also now repeat the workshop programme throughout the academic year.
What if I need to speak to careers while I am away from the UK?
We provide appointments via skype, telephone and email.
