More Birthday Wishes from Harper Adams University
Harper Adams University Careers Service have promoted and used the Countryside Jobs Service Weekly for many years in a whole manner of ways. We promote the service and highlight the website in all our taught sessions and engagement with students. This can be part of one to one guidance sessions with students and also in larger group sessions. Feedback from students has been excellent and the opportunities advertised and written articles have proven helpful in kick starting careers once students have completed their degree courses.
Volunteering and seasonal work has also been able to enhance students CV’s and help them evidence and gain experience, all things essential for candidates competing for posts.
The Careers Service feel the Countryside Jobs Service is an essential part of our guidance tool kit and frankly we could not do without it!
