By now you’ve obviously heard about our Careers & Opportunities Fair, which is taking place on 25th October between 11am and 3pm in the Walled Garden. If not, you’ve clearly been living under a rock, and need to watch this video immediately:
But what’s in it for you? We’ve compiled a handy list of what benefits are on offer for Fair attendees (that means you)
1) A headstart when applying for graduate schemes
The astounding range of graduate schemes on offer can be overwhelming, can’t it? With different deadlines, requirements and applications/interview processes, there’s a lot to find out about. Many of the employers at the Fair will have their own schemes, so this is a fantastic chance to find out more about the various programmes and to get any questions you have answered in person.
2) A placement (or year in industry)
Our placements team do a brilliant job of seeking out opportunities for you to get hands-on experience in a huge range of workplaces. But it’s not just up to us! Tracking down your own work experience or internships means you’re able to try out a role that’s absolutely perfect for you – and talking to and building your own relationships with employers is one of the best ways to go about this.
3) A new set of contacts – and practice talking to them
As we’ve covered in a previous post, we know that talking to employers can be daunting if you’re not used to it. So with more than 30 companies on-campus, this is your time to get practising. Introduce yourself to the employers and have a brief chat – once you’ve got their details, you can follow up with them and get in contact with any further questions in the future.
4) Careers advice on hand
In addition to tens of employers, we’ll also have a Bath Spa Careers stand of our own at the fair – so you can pop by and pick up some advice from one of our friendly Careers Consultants, or ask us a question. We’ll be giving out brochures to take away and read in your own time, too, in case there’s anything you’ve missed or need to refresh your memory on.
