Don’t miss out – go along to the graduate recruitment fair

More than 190 organisations will be attending the country’s largest campus-based graduate careers fair, which takes place at the University on Tuesday 21 October.

You’ll have the opportunity to network with some of the UK’s leading employers including Aldi, GE, Microsoft, Caterpillar, Apple, Marks & Spencer and Decathlon. Companies will also be promoting opportunities for placements, internships and graduate programmes. A full list of exhibitors is available online.

Accounting and Financial Management graduate Chris Nelson attended the University’s careers fair in 2012 and was subsequently offered a placement and then a graduate job with accountancy firm EY.

He said: “The careers fair is a vital tool for any student searching for a placement or graduate opportunity. Attending the fair allowed me to talk to employers I was interested in, get a feel for the company and ask recent graduates specific questions that ultimately helped me during the application process.

“As a result I was able to secure a placement and subsequent graduate job from EY and I have no doubt that the conversations and information I gained at the fair helped immensely.”

The Graduate Placement and Careers Fair takes place at the University’s Sir David Wallace Sports Hall and James France Exhibition Centre on Tuesday 21 October from 11am to 4pm.

The event is free and there’s no need to book.
