Becky Wilson BA (Hons) Web and Multimedia Design

Web designer, iTCHY ROBOT

'The Careers Service showed me what employers would be expecting from a portfolio and possible employee. From doing the Boost Summer Placement I ended up with a part time Web Designer job during my third year at university, which has become a full time job now that I have graduated.'

Sarah Thompson

PR Executive, Harvey & Hugo

'The Careers Service were brilliant. I was made redundant after my first role out of university, so they gave me advice on my CV, and gave me an endless list of websites for job searches. Soon after, I landed my current role.'
