Career Expos

Alongside effective online advertising, Career Fairs/Expos remain a tried and tested means of engaging with future talent.

During the academic year, universities host a series of specialist careers events in a variety of formats. They are an excellent opportunity for students and recent graduates to gather information, get a feel for the organisational culture of exhibitors and pick up hints and tips for being successful in often daunting recruitment processes.

Attending events alongside advertising opportunities further strengthens brand awareness and allows potential applicants to put a face to a name.

Generally expos run over a 2-3 hour timeslot and are quite informal.

See a full list of upcoming career expos below and for more details on the events contact universities directly.

Here is a list of expos happening in 2022 across our member Universities. For more information about the Career Expo you would like to attend please contact universities directly.
