It is incredible how often I get this reply. It makes so little sense when you think about it:
These people are here to help you.
They know which degrees lead to where.
They have loads of free booklets dedicated to each subject area offered at university.
They know what jobs are available.
They know the entry requirements for different jobs.
They can advise you on and help you to improve your CV.
They can help you get a paid internship.
Why are you still reading this? Why aren’t you talking to the Careers Service already?
