How should I prepare?

For you to have the best experience possible and make the most out of your time at Careers Fair, we suggest making a plan of who you want to visit and what you want to achieve by visiting them.

For Careers Fair 2018 we have launched the Careers Fair Plus app which is your introduction to over 135 organisations exhibiting at the Fair, the opportunities they are offering and who they are looking to employ.

If you really don't have a clue, that's ok too! Come to Careers Fair to start exploring the different options available to you, including graduate jobs, year-long placements, summer/vacation work opportunities, volunteering and further study/training.

Considering the following might also help:

  • Download the Careers Fair app
  • Research what vacancies and opportunities are available at the organisations you are interested in visiting. You could ask them what it's like to work in that role/team
  • Find out what you can about the organisation's application processes as this could also be a good talking point
  • Plan your route! Use the floor plans in the app to highlight the organisations of interest to you
  • Take a look at our further resources

Prepare for Careers Fair workshops

We run a series of workshops to help students learn how best to engage with exhibitors, and make their experience more worthwhile and enjoyable. All workshops have now passed. Book your place on CareerHub!
