The Careers department at York was critical to the success of my job application.
Friendly and always available, they ensured that any request I had was dealt with immediately.
I would strongly recommend anyone, whether or not you are applying to a graduate/internship role to get in touch. To give you confidence and self-evaluation, to see your strengths and give you direction."
