What VE students say about our service

"I have edited those few changes you suggested and think the letter and CV are looking so much better! I feel so much more confident now with applying for roles, so a massive thank you!" - Shelley.

"Thanks for our chat today, I'm feeling positive about my job prospects." - Bianca.

"The VE careers support service helped me clarify a few questions in regards to further studies in Higher Education and what employers may seek when it comes to applying for jobs. It also provided me with a few tips and tricks on how to make my resumé more appealing. The career support staff member was also very friendly, therefore, I would highly recommend this free service to fellow students." - Steven.

"This is a really brilliant service. I felt much more prepared in terms of what to expect in job interviews, writing a new resumé and general tips and tricks. Caitlyn (Careers Consultant) helped me and she was nothing short of incredible! I appreciate all her help and have been blown away by the support at RMIT." - Kelly.
