Callum Smith "The Careers Network gave me a huge amount of help in my initial steps to securing employment after graduation with the use of their one-to-one CV guidance meetings. Before going to one of these, my CV was plain and didn't stand out much. After sitting down for 20 minutes with an adviser, I was able to articulate my skills and qualities incredibly more efficiently. This has enabled me to transfer this into other applications (as so many are now purely online with no CVs) and also in my own Personal Development Plan in my current role.

Since graduating with a 2:1 BSc (Hons) International Business, I undertook a Graduate Internship at Deutsche Bank, which I found and successfully applied for through the Careers Network online job board. I am now on a two year Government Development Scheme at the Home Office."
