Careers Fairs

The Careers Service fairs provide you with the chance to meet representatives from a variety of recruiting organisations, learn about the vacancies and opportunities available, and market yourself to prospective employers.

REGISTRATIONS NOW OPEN FOR OUR MICHAELMAS CAREERS FAIRS >>

At most of our fairs, you can attend a variety of talks or presentations focused on specific issues, and get advice on your CV from the employees of the firms attending.

The recruiters are trying to market their organisation to you and inform or persuade you why you should consider applying to them. However, the fairs are also an opportunity for you to market yourself to potential employers. It can be difficult for students to stand out at fairs; there are so many people there and it can seem overwhelming. Being prepared is the best way to make a good impression and get noticed. Think ahead and have a strategy.
