Careers Fairs are a great opportunity to make some really good headway with your career planning in a very short space of time – think about all those employers under one roof! If you know what you want to do, this is a great opportunity to research employers, graduate schemes and placements. If you don’t know what you want to do, it’s a great opportunity to find out what’s out there for Reading grads.
There will be an opportunity to network and find out what the different types of schemes are about, what employers are looking for and to talk to recruiters to get some top tips on how to do well in applications and interviews. You will also discover which employers are looking for your degree and get the inside track from graduates who have recently joined the organisation. You also get a chance to practice your interview technique by talking to employers and make wider connections with other contacts who may be able to offer advice.
