Fair breakout sessions
Whilst the fair is underway, there will be three breakout sessions taking place in the College Building. Please do get in touch if this is something you would like to be involved in.
The annual Graduate Jobs Fair is aimed at connecting organisations to graduates and final year students who are immediately available for positions. You get to meet approximately 500+ final year students and graduates on the day who are keen to engage with employers operating across a range of industries. It is a great way for you to network with City (soon-to-be) graduates, promote your opportunities and shortlist immediately as well as giving you a platform and exposure in a short time.
Aim of the event
Our aim is to help both our final year students/graduates and recruiting organisations by giving them the opportunity to meet and discuss recruitment plans and practices. We hope the event will be a chance for you to share with prospective applicants what you expect of them and how they can make the most of their applications to you.
Students and graduates would expect to meet with company representatives as well as human resources/recruitment staff who are well informed about the organisation and able to provide insight into the job tasks, company culture and career paths you offer.
How to prepare for this event
Based on feedback from previous fairs at City, students were impressed with exhibitors that:
- Had a number of representatives from various divisions of the business at the fair
- Had City alumni attending the event
- Were prepared to answer questions on the application and interview process
- Were enthusiastic and eager to engage with the student
Students were disappointed with exhibitors that:
- Kept directing them to the company's website
- Did not look willing to engage with them and answer their questions
Attendance and Marketing
City's fairs are quite large in scale, and this fair always takes place in June, when interest from final year students and graduates is at its height. Furthermore, we are running our fairs on Wednesday afternoons, when no lectures are being held at City (all lectures finish at 12/1pm) to ensure maximum attendance. The fair will be widely advertised on our website and the staff hub, through email alerts to academic departments and via brochures and posters around campus.
This is an excellent opportunity for you to raise your profile on campus and generate high quality applications, ensuring that final and year students and graduates are aware of you and your graduate vacancies and work experience opportunities.
Equality and Diversity
If any of your exhibitors require accommodation for a disability please contact us in advance. If a disability prevents you from completing an online booking form please email us for alternative arrangements.
