What’s on the Careers Service’s coffee table?
Not a stack of year-old copies of Empire, Men’s Health and Heat, that’s f’sure. As the new term flood of careers titles abates it’s time to give you a round up of what’s available. Copies of all are available to browse and/or take away at your campus Careers Centre. If not, let us know and we’ll get some to you. Now, without any further delay…
