Exhibitor list

Target audience

Our Virtual Jobs Event is aimed at connecting organisations to graduates and final year students who are immediately available for positions. You will have the opportunity to engage with a vast number of final year students and graduates 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. Students from all course backgrounds will be invited to attend.

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 has historically taken place in June, when interest from final year students and graduates is at its height. Due to the pandemic the date and mode of delivery has changed but we are confident that students are more interested than ever to learn more about opportunities that are available to them.

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.
