As a recruiter what do you think about career services?

There has been a growing trend for career services. Universities and Colleges have plenty of career services like recruitment talks and career counselling which I have participated in. Apart from Universities, I have participated in external career workshops. They mostly teach about resume writing, interview skills and building your professional profile on LinkedIn. I personally feel they have not been helpful. I feel the career workshops place too much emphasis on building my profile and don't tell me the hard skills I should work on. Moreover they make networking sound easy but when it is not. As a recruiter what do you think about these services, do they really increase the chance of employment? I hope you could shed some light on this matter, thank you. #career-services #career-workshops
