What happens at a university careers fair?

Our careers fairs give students the chance to network with national and international employers. They provide a relaxed environment where you can:

  • Discuss graduate roles and placements
  • Learn about companies' recruitment processes
  • Check that you're developing the right work-related skills

How do I get the most out of a careers fair?

Make sure you're prepared:

  • Attend a preparation workshop, receive a list of the employers attending and prioritise who you want to speak to
  • Research the employers that you are interested in
  • Introduce yourself and be prepared to give your elevator pitch
  • Dress professionally as first impressions are important
  • Make sure you've updated your CV and have copies to hand. If you need help, we offer CV support

Why should I attend a careers fair?

  • Meet a wide range of employers in one place
  • Find out about job opportunities
  • Get tips on what recruiters are looking for
  • Find out when they are hiring
  • Discuss recruitment cycles, plans and practices

Our students have found careers fairs very beneficial, as it gave them the opportunity to have direct access to those who can offer jobs and placement opportunities. By attending careers fairs it gives you the opportunity to talk directly with representatives from the employer, which no other recruitment method offers.

When do careers fairs take place?

We are currently planning the fair dates for the 2023-24 academic year, and will be releasing these dates soon. Our next Recruitment and Careers Fair takes place on the 26th April 2023 on our Greenwich campus.

  • What I'll miss most about the university is the staff and the amazing support they offer. They really encourage you to have your own voice and ideas.
