Employer recruitment events

Man presenting to a group

Hear directly from companies and organisations actively targeting UoN students and graduates. At these events, employers will talk to you about:

  • their graduate job and internship vacancies
  • what it's like to work for the company
  • what they look for in applicants
  • what the recruitment and selection process involves
  • what the graduate scheme involves and much more

Before you attend an event, take a look at the company's website to find out more about them. Think about the questions you have to work out if you would like to work for them. Avoid asking anything that you could easily find the answer on their website. This is an opportunity to impress, so do some initial research.
