Here it is… Bath Spa’s first ever Careers & Opportunities Fair, and it’s one you’re not going to want to miss!
On Tuesday 25th October, we will be welcoming 32 organisations onto campus who are keen to talk to YOU about the types of opportunities they have available and what it’s like to work within their organisations.
Taking place between 11am and 3pm in the Walled Garden, you can drop by between your lectures and on your lunch break to explore what’s out there in the big wide world of work.
The fair is open to students from all degree disciplines and all year groups. If you’re in first year, this is a great chance to start exploring possible career paths and talking to employers about what it’s like to work within their industry.
If you’re a second-year, you may be thinking about carrying out a placement or internship during the academic year or over your summer break. The fair is the right place for you, too. There will be employers there offering these kind of opportunities, who will be able to talk to you about what to expect.
Final-year student:, this is an absolute must-attend, even if you have no idea what you want to do once you leave University! It’s important to remember all those transferable skills you have developed and how they could be used in a number of different industries. Use the fair to explore graduate positions you may not have considered before and ask lots and lots of questions about the type of experience you would need to apply for the role – and, of course, any hints and tips you can gather for the application process.
A lot of the organisations attending will be bringing along recent graduates that currently work for them, as well as students on placement within their business – even some from Bath Spa. Remember that they want to talk to you just as much as you want to talk to them.
Prior to the fair, you can attend one of our workshops on ‘How to prepare for the fair’. Book your place through My Career.

See you there!
