Christopher Goodyear

Christopher Goodyear BA (Hons) Creative Digital Media

Graduate intern, Darlington Borough Council

'What did I gain from using the Careers Service? A job! I wouldn’t have had half as many opportunities to try for jobs and positions without the patience of the Careers team. Even though I had some failures along the way, they still persistently encouraged me to apply for suitable jobs that they had come across. I always felt they were trying their hardest to get me where I wanted to be.'

 
 

Nicola Humble

Nicola Humble BSc (Hons) Forensic Investigation and Consumer Law

‘I went to a couple of helpful seminars – how to write your CV and interview techniques. And when I was successfully shortlisted, one of the advisers set up a mock interview. This was really useful as I could discuss what I conveyed well and what I could do to sell myself more.’
