Careers expos

Find out about the careers expos coming up on campus to meet employers who are keen to talk to you about graduate recruitment or internship opportunities.

Whether you are a student or recent graduate, careers expos are an excellent opportunity to meet employers and professional organisations in person. Practice your networking skills and find out what it is that recruiters are looking for. Participating in an expo can help you to make career decisions and feel more confident to take the next steps, either towards an internship or your first graduate role.

The careers expos are run throughout the academic year and follow a simple, informal format over a two to three-hour advertised period.
