You don't need to register, simply turn up on the day!

 Top Tips

  • There is no need to wear a suit, but dress appropriately as first impressions do count. We will have a professional photographer available if you would like to have a free headshot photo taken for your LinkedIn profile.
  • Employers like to talk to enthusiastic, well-researched students so if there are any organisations that you particularly want to work for then find out as much about the company and their career opportunities in advance of the day.
  • Bring along your CV. And if you haven’t polished your CV yet, our team of career professionals will be happy to help. More information about how to do this can be found here.
  • Be flexible and visit the event with an open mind and talk to as many organisations as you can. You never know, your dream job could be working in a company that you have not yet heard of!
  • Allow yourself adequate time as there are plenty of employers to visit. 
  • Prioritise the employers you’re most interested in.
  • Enjoy the day and try to learn as much as possible about your future career possibilities.

Quiet Time from 10:30am 

We understand that Careers Fairs can be busy and noisy events which can make attending them an overwhelming experience. For those who may have difficulty attending, there is a Quiet Time slot starting at 10:30am to allow for a calm half an hour before the doors open at 11am.
