Careers Network

Meet employers

At Loughborough there are many opportunities to meet employers at Careers Fairs and one off events such as employer presentations, skills sessions and 'drop-ins'. Meeting employers on campus is a good way to explore a range of career options in an informal environment. Talk directly to recruiters, and hear about their career stories and insider advice. They are often Loughborough graduates themselves!

Employer presentations, workshops and drop-ins

Employer presentations, workshops and 'drop-ins' take place throughout the year but weeks 1-7 of semester 1 and the first few weeks of semester 2 are the busiest periods. At this time there is an employer event on every day of the week - in fact, there's often several on each day!

The employer events list will be updated weekly with the fortnight's schedule, so make sure to check here regularly in the Autumn Term.

Making the most of careers fairs

From small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to corporations with offices around the world, a range of employers attend our careers fairs. These events present the opportunity to network informally with employers to find out as much as possible about the different career paths you may want to explore.

Careers fairs are open to all students and a mixture of employers offering placements and graduate roles are present. Remember that about two thirds of employers will be open to recruiting students from any course of study, so don't assume that your degree won't be relevant and keep your options open.

Attend careers fairs to:

  • Learn more about what opportunities are available and what employers look for
  • Meet employers and recent graduates and build your professional network
  • Find out about recruitment processes
  • Be noticed and get a head start in your applications

Further advice on making the most of a careers fair is in the following PDF:

Find out more information about our careers fairs below. Each entry will be updated with current information closer to the fair dates.
