Target audience

The fair will be primarily aimed at our Law and Social Sciences students but will be open to students from other courses as well, who are thinking of pursuing a career in law. First year students are encouraged to attend so that they can research organisations and vacation opportunities. View further information about the range of courses at City and their academic content.

The first half hour of the fair will be designated as an Accessible Hour, allowing students who have access needs and requirements advance access to the exhibitors available, in order to have undisrupted and meaningful conversations about the roles on offer.

Aim of the event

Our aim is to help both our students and recruiting firms and 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 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

The event will be advertised in advance of the day and all company videos that are submitted will be shared with students in advance of the session. Marketing material containing adverts and further company information will be created be shared with students in advance.

This is an excellent opportunity for you to raise your profile on campus and generate high quality applications, ensuring that final and pre-final year students are aware of you and your graduate vacancies and work experience opportunities.
