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.

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.

We are currently running all events online

While restrictions are expected to be eased over the coming months, there is still uncertainty over when large scale gatherings will be permitted to resume, meaning it is not possible to plan for in-person events at the current time.
