Get your Career in Gear. Count down to the Jobs and Careers Fair

Our Careers Fair is just round the corner; the chance to wonder round the stalls, get some BBQ, and pick up some swag… Or just maybe it’s more than that? Perhaps it’s the chance to get yourself set up for that all-elusive prize – the graduate job.

Jobs and Careers Fair

Careers Fairs can be busy places with lots going on. You have employers trying to get your attention, your friends crowding round the jobs boards or trying to decide which presentation to go along to.

If you think about it, it’s a lot of time and effort for companies to come along to a careers fair and it’s just to see people like you, those engaged and prepared. Even if you don’t come out with a job (and don’t expect to – companies rarely hire on the day) you’ll still have valuable insight into the working world and maybe a few contacts to help you get there. Many careers have been started at a fair and believe me that will last a lot longer than a free pen!
