At Loughborough there are many opportunities to meet employers at Careers Fairs and events such as employer presentations, skills sessions and Q&As. Meeting employers in person and online 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. Many of our events are also delivered or hosted by experts from the Careers Network team.
