“You Said, We Did”

Posted on Career planning, Forums and webinars, IT sector

“The careers service gave me the confidence I needed…”

Did our careers workbook give you just what you needed? Did that webinar kick-start your career plans? Did our interview simulator enhance your chances? We are always trying to improve the OU’s Careers and Employability Services… and what you tell us helps us do that. Have your say and fill in our Careers Questionnaire.

Watch this two-minute animation to see how your comments make a difference:

You Said…We Did

“You could try listening to what help the students ask for.”

We listened. We trialled a new way of designing our recent physical sciences and computing and IT careers forums with a ‘Who do you want to talk to?’ poll suggesting a range of external guests. We then worked with a range of contributors matching the roles students were interested in.

“It’s been much more helpful than I expected. I’m definitely going to be coming back.”

We’re very happy that your comments are helping us help you better. As a result, we’ve not only been growing our family of guest employers, but also making changes to our resources and other services so you can get the right advice at the right time. Our career planning tools, forums, webinars and interactive events will be even more user-friendly and useful to you in the coming academic year thanks to the comments you provide. Watch this space for more news.

Help us help you better

Whatever your dreams and ambitions, we are here to help you get to where you want to be. Tell us how useful you found our services and help us help more OU students realise their potential and become #OUCareerConfident.
