The trendence job search optimism index is an indicator for graduate confidence in relation to their job prospects. It
has been calculated with respect to two parameters, which have been chosen yearly as part of the evaluation of the
job application process. 1) Number of anticipated applications. 2) Length of time it takes to secure a job. The highest
possible mark of 100 symbolises an "overheating" of the market: in such a market every graduate would find a
position within the shortest of time and with minimal effort.
Question: How many months do you expect to need (or did you require) to find your first position after graduation?
Question: How many applications do you expect to make (or did you make) to find your first professional position?

LIT Careers Service would now like to ask you the following question: What are the most effective ways that LIT Careers Service can
promote events and services to you on campus and do you have any tips for them to improve their student marketing?
Information on website, well informed staff, E-mail contact with each student.
A career service day, one to one opportunities to meet with employers, be informed of all opportunities/salary with that company.
Opportunities for summer internship programmes could be emailed to all students.
A careers board in the street (more noticeable), using the tv's everywhere for announcments on careers.
A careers lecture for each final year class/department instead of one (or more) of their scheluded lectures during the year (with
permission of the lecturer of course!)
Advertisment for all jobs available.
Advertisment in the street.
Advertisement.
Always email the whole campus on their service at least twice a week.
Bring in speakers from different companies in different job sectors explaining how the course i'm studying relates to that company.
By email and lectures. More facilities such as pubs, shops, night life etc on campus.
By email, posters around the college, guest talks.
By e-mail.
By student email and facebook.

LIT Careers Service would now like to ask you the following question: What are the most effective ways that LIT Careers Service can
promote events and services to you on campus and do you have any tips for them to improve their student marketing?
Career Fairs.
Careers day.
Come around to classes or ask lecturers to make short announcements about updates in the Careers Service. Not everyone reads
their emails and certainly, not everyone reads notices on notice boards. Therefore, information goes unheard.
Compulsory workshops.
Create more awareness.
Create workshops and meetings so students understand and are aware of prospective markets.
Direct emails and the Facebook page are the best ways to find out information.
Do more advertising on social network sites. Make the message clear that there are oppurtunities available to students. I think
many students believe that numbers that actually get recruited can be very low.
Do not have lectures on when the fairs occur so that I can attend the fairs.
Do not separate the art college from the main campus, bring some of the important events down to us.
Email, facebook.

LIT Careers Service would now like to ask you the following question: What are the most effective ways that LIT Careers Service can

E-mail is the best communication. Text alerts are also useful.
Email reminders, fliers on canteen tables, fliers on car windows.
Emails and faceook, also inform lectures as they always inform us of good opportunities.
Emails and monitor display.
Emails and notices.
Emails and notices.
Emails are the most effective I think. I feel that Social care jobs are not very well represented at the LIT career fairs, but I'm sure
they are harder to get.
Emails are the most effective way! I was interested in law/ legal and the career's office didn't really deal with this. Also asked
questions about other career options and Joanne didn't really know much about this (teaching, insurance etc). I suppose it was
such a small class so more time is spent on classes of larger size which I accept.
Expand the campus.
Eye catching posters, I always look out for posters. Announcements.
Facebook.
Facebook.

LIT Careers Service would now like to ask you the following question: What are the most effective ways that LIT Careers Service can

Flyers, Posters, Handouts, Emails.
Get in contact more with the students whether it be calling into class during lectures or handing out info on the street.
Give out goodie bags!
Give out more free stuff at different stages of the year, building a rappor with the students.
Give the careers officer a bigger office and more staff. Erect a dedicated careers notice board and keep it regularly updated.
Guest lectures, more careers fairs, career leaflets.
Guest lecturing, stalls and use of the notice board. More attention could be paid to 1st/2nd year college students on getting them
internships and summer experience.
Have more CV preparation courses and mock interviews.
Have more days with employers on the street showing that there is different careers and job opportunities.
Have more in relation to the Art college.
Have more opportunities for art students, we are forgotten about over in clare street.
Have more time to spend with students other than two hours in the library on a Tuesday. Events have been well advertised in the
past with plenty of emails and posters.
Hold an event in the college with all information about different places but make it fun like having different things to take part in to
make you want to go see what they are trying to promote rather than the employers just sitting down talking.

Individual question – open answers
LIT Careers Service would now like to ask you the following question: What are the most effective ways that LIT Careers Service can
promote events and services to you on campus and do you have any tips for them to improve their student marketing?
Hold career events and nights out to promote the respective industries people are interested in.
Hold fairs on the street so that students can see what careers there are out there. Send emails to the students and stick up posters
around the college. Also organise a party etc for after the fair, thats sure to get more students to go!
Holding talks within specilised areas/course, giving the talks within a timetabled structure.
I believe that social media is the way to go in order to get the message out to a larger audience.
I felt that in lSAD we were somewhat left out of the loop, when it came to student services.
I myself feel that certain lectures I ask a question to dismisses me and everytime i knock at the careers advices office i get no
answer I feel like the college isn't giving my the support I need even when I try and get help to the direction I want to go in I might
as well be invisible.
I only ever received a few emails telling me about services, many students count those emails as spam and never read them,
therefore I think posters in the college detailing services would be more beneficial.
I think E-mail is a good way to communicate. One way to possibly improve would have people visit classes and speak to some
students for 5 minutes about any upcoming events/services.
I think if they held events on student nights, they would be very popular and students would learn more about what they're trying to
promote.
I think it would be advantageous to me if LIT invited more firm owners and executives to come and meet students on a face to face
basis, maybe getting the hospitality students to host an event. This form of networking would enable students to talk to potential
employers on a more less formal way to an interview.
I think more visability in the college 'street' would be good and more information availability on what the service provides.
I think they should start promoting themselves alot more aggressively when it comes to distant counties as it would improve their
numbers and also i think that if they had a relationship with many employers, it would be easier for graduates to start their career.

LIT Careers Service would now like to ask you the following question: What are the most effective ways that LIT Careers Service can
promote events and services to you on campus and do you have any tips for them to improve their student marketing?
I Think what LIT are doing is the best a student can get but nevertheless more employer relations will be great and alittle more
communications with students.
I would reccomend that they hold career days and set up appointments with the career advisor previous to work placements and
graduation.
Inform by email kept on file at LIT.
Keep up to date via e mails like they are currently doing and possibly put a strong efforrt in getting the best companies to come and
present their information.
Let people know whats happening by email.
LIT careers service could organize a placement for managment in hotels.
Longer notice of the events and cancel some lectures for students to attend them.
Make the shop and canteen cheaper for students and more access to computers, the segregated class rooms are too big and
unnecessary.
Make times more convient I have a very full timetable and stuff always seem to be on at unsuitable times. Start earlier like in 1st
year with informing students of options and choices.
More career fairs.
More career fairs with employers with available positions.
More careers fair for the individual sectors.
More careers fairs and have them on for longer.

LIT Careers Service would now like to ask you the following question: What are the most effective ways that LIT Careers Service can

More construction firms and companies to present at events.
More Emails to promote up coming events, set up a stall on the main street to advertise and to make the students more aware of its
services.
More employer workshops, more training opportunities to train with potential employers.
More frequent fairs and more updates on a Facebook page.
More interaction with the careers officer, I found her rude and intimidating. Free shuttle bus to the fair in UL as it is alot bigger and
worth while.
More notifications on the social network sites.
More personal experience , hands on approach.
More posters and emails and try to get all students onto the social networks to advertise.
More sign posts in college, Emails,
announcements.
Need more information on where to go to find out about jobs in the Social Care profession and on working abroad and what is
needed abroad.
Never have I seen a day dedicated to the IT department to get employers names in IT students minds. There should be one at some
stage.
No ideas.
No they were quite good at that.

LIT Careers Service would now like to ask you the following question: What are the most effective ways that LIT Careers Service can

Talking to the class during college and show whats available when qualified.
Targeted emails, stands in main areas.
Tell the leccturers who will tell the students and stress how important it is to meet with future employers even if it is only to get a
feel of what they are like...
The art college is forgotten about, if there are any events they happen in moylish and we never go out there. Theres difficult
transport links and its unaccessible for us. Dont forget about the art college.
The car park not enough for students, food on campus are very expensive.The lecturers to be reviewed every two years very
important, the student opinion should be weighed concerning the reviews.
The waiting time to see the career officer should be reduced by half.
They already provide an excellent service.
They could allocate particular times especially at the very start of 4th year or even the end of 3rd year to go through students CV if
they wished and maybe look at different options to suit students who may be unsure what they wish to do after the course. They
could meet with the students more often and see if they need any assistance with filling out applications or any help on preparing
for interviews or assessment centres.
Think so far is good, I get regular emails updating me of events coming up.
Think they are doing a great job as it is. Thanks.
Through email as well as poster and way before the actual date. LIT need more science related career services, I think there is too
much business related career service in my email.
Through e-mail which is done already.

LIT Careers Service would now like to ask you the following question: What are the most effective ways that LIT Careers Service can
promote events and services to you on campus and do you have any tips for them to improve their student marketing?
Through Facebook,emails and lectures.
To forward any email sent to the institute by any potential employer to the students in the relevant courses.
To have more career days, where perhaps top 10 employers in various study areas present their company.
To invite more employers to the campus as alot went to visit UL students and not LIT students.
To make the events more attractive.
Try to improve job opportunities for mature students for instance accountancy bodies tend to employ younger students and skip
over mature students which I feel is their loss.I feel that the mature student has a lot to offer and tends to be the better student
because they are more focused. I think it is sad that a mature student could be top of his class and then be passed over in favourite
of a younger model.
Use email.
Use of social networking to promote.
Via E-mail.
What they currently do is good.
