  • Job Search - for part-time, placement, graduate and international graduate jobs
  • CVs, applications & interviews - a selection of online resources and DVDs
  • Practice psychometric tests - one of the GCU London students said: 'An amazing tool to really get a feel for the kind of questions/tests that may appear when applying for jobs!'
