How to get the most out of the fair

If you're new to our fairs, read our tips to help you prepare and make sure you get the most out of this event.

  • Do your research - Make sure you look into the employers you're interested in speaking to. What do they do? What jobs and internships are they offering? What subjects are they recruiting students from? If you're stuck for ideas, read Rosie's blog on the four key areas to research to give you some starting points.
  • Prepare some questions - The fair gives you the opportunity to ask questions and show potential employers your interest in their organisation. Come up with some good questions that show the recruiter you are interested in the company and that you have done some prior research.
  • Plan your time - Some employers will be delivering short presentations and others will be available to chat throughout the day. Make sure you plan who you would like to speak to and if they are particularly busy you can always speak to someone else on your list while you wait.
  • Be open to new ideas - Look at what each company and role offers. Who knows, you could find something you haven't considered before.
