What is the Careers Opportunities Fair?
Career Opportunities Fair
The careers fair is a great opportunity for students to connect with employers to discuss work experience, internship and graduate opportunities! It’s never too early to meet with employers and find out what they’re looking for in CVs and application forms. The annual Career Opportunities Fair will take place on Thursday the 27th of October in the Sir Ian Wood Building however, this year, a few new elements have been added!
There are lots of workshops and events at the Career Opportunities Fair, all of which will help you to further your networking skills, enhance your interview technique, and improve your CV! Here are some of the events taking place on campus:
LinkedIn is essentially the professional version of Facebook and it is used by many employers to source potential candidates or to advertise jobs. Don’t have an account yet or need to update it? Why not start with getting your photo taken? Having a professional photo is key, employers do not want to see a photo of you on a night out! If you don’t have a professional photo stop by the Fair and get one taken there.
LinkedIn, CV, Job Search, Interview Workshops
Don’t know how or why to use LinkedIn? Unsure how to write a CV? No clue where to begin looking for a job? Freaked out by the possibility of an interview and what might be asked?
