The time is coming up for the termly feedback survey for LSE Careers so expect a copy in your inbox soon. If you’ve attended a Careers event or seen one of the Careers Consultants this term, we would be very glad to hear from you. We use the surveys as an important source to shape the services we offer and we take notice of your comments, so it is well worth taking five minutes to type your views.

We have made improvements lately and some have been the direct result of student views.

Careers discussion and CV and cover letter appointments

You said you wanted to be able to book these appointments in advance in previous feedback. You can now book these appointments for the morning of the next day. Appointments are released for booking daily at 9:30am and you can still book an appointment on the same day.

You also said you wanted longer appointments. Increased appointment times of 20 minutes in Lent Term and Summer Term are available. It’s worth noting that we do offer 30-minute guidance appointments to students to students who need a longer consultation – these are by referral only, but speak to your careers consultant if you feel you need a longer discussion.

Visa advice

You have asked us to provide advice on visas. Our careers consultants are not qualified to do this, but the LSE International Student Visa Advice Team (ISVAT) can help you with advice on UK immigration rules.

Room bookings

We have also recently improved the booking system if you want to use a Careers meeting room for your telephone or Skype job interview so that a space is designated for you with time to prepare.

We are listening to your views and adapting to provide the most effective and useful services we can to help you to build your career so please do let us know how you think we are doing.

The survey is open until Sunday 30 April and takes about five minutes to complete.

Contact us if you have any questions. Thanks again for your time – your opinion really does count!
