Yes, the Careers and Placements Fair is for everyone
Written by Alison Taylor, Careers Consultant
You might be surprised to hear that over 60% of jobs advertised to graduates are open to students who have studied any degree subject… that’s a lot of interesting possibilities! If you’re one of Reading’s many arts, humanities or social science students, you might be wondering if it’s worth attending our Careers Fair on 19th October. It’s all about big business, right? They won’t be interested in me, will they? Answer – NO!
Our Fair will have over 90 organisations represented, from big names to small and medium-sized companies, and although some will be looking for graduates from specific courses, not all of them will be! Why not call in and take a look? Did you know that big consultancy firm PwC recruits students from any subject area into their general consultancy areas? The NHS has a graduate scheme which includes a general management stream? Interested in a creative career? Come and talk to the Society of Young Publishers. Fancy going abroad? Speak to JET about teaching in Japan or Mountbatten Institute about internships in the U.S. …. Need I go on? That’s just 5 – leaving many more organisations to explore!
