How to make the most of LinkedIn

Megan Dyer - BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science student

I’ve found the career resources to be very well populated and managed. For example, I found my current role as a Brand Ambassador for Sanctuary Recruitment through the MyCareer and I have also found the resources such as CV 360 and the tests, such as learning style, highly insightful and the results have helped provide clarity on the type of career that I want, to improve my skills and to tailor my approaches to things which suit me best. Moreover, I have used MyCareer to join pathways, book appointments and events with the friendly careers team to provide me with a human’s prospective and/or more specific guidance and direction.
