New Employers page

As part of our overhaul of the Student Development (now Careers) website we are re-developing the Employers area. This part of the site is suppose to attract and inform Employers how they can engage with our service and advantages of recruiting our students.

Here is the new design:

The main ‘Graduate with an extra dimension’ graphic is been used as part of a larger marketing campaign. The smaller images link to three ways that employers can ‘Get Involved’. There are various options of for these images which I’d like your help choosing the best.

I also produced this image to ask the question ‘Why employ University of Leicester graduates?’, which in the image above has been included in a portlet. But this may be a bit overkill? The purpose of this image is to link to the area ‘About our students’, which I plan to supplement with a video of Employers talking about University of Leicester Students.

  1. Exhibit at a fair, I like A – I was messing with that one for a long banner image.

    Advertise vacancies is a difficult one, I’m not sure what image. I think A and B are too corporate looking. But not sure about C.

    Engage in events? Probably E.

    1. I know what you’re saying about the vacancies image. These are supposed to represent an interview. I could go with something like C, but all the other images I’ve made in this style so far have had people in them. I was think of doing something with the JobsOnline logo, but I’m not sure employers would know what that is?

  2. Other comments and votes so far:

    From Karen:
    I think it looks good and I definitely prefer this block style with images rather than a list – and it’s a
    lot less text heavy.

    For the ‘Advertise Vacancies’ bit, I prefer image C.
    I’m not convinced a picture of people sat at a desk says much

    Form Jo:
    – Exhibit at a fair I like F – the lady looks really engaged in what she is explaining
    – Advertise vacancies – happy to take on board Karen’s comments
    – Engage in events – No preference

  3. Hi Matt. Good work – big improvement. I’m happy with any of the images the EL team choose (apart from the ‘Why employ Leicester graduates?’ image – too busy and doesn’t need an image. Now we need to think about the overall structure and the portlets…
