Case studies

Graduates, students on placement and international students share their stories of life at the University of Bradford and their employability journey.

Graduate case studies

Career and Employability Services were a great support during my time at university. I attended various workshops addressing how to fill out job applications, tips and advice with writing CVs and cover letters, as well as the most effective way to perform in both a telephone and face-to-face interview. Yara Chobaki, BEng (Hons) Medical Engineering with Industrial Placement (2017)

Student placement case studies

The Career Consultant discussed with me how to complete and progress my applications. Furthermore, I was also provided with help regarding psychometric tests which I found were a large part, and often, the first step of placement applications. Faizaan Patel

International case studies

I would recommend any student to start applying for internships and placements from the end of their first year, as it is better to apply earlier and secure your position rather than apply late and don’t have many vacancies to apply to. Farooq Arshad, BSc (Hons) Accounting and Finance (2017)
