The London Graduate Fair 2012 Highlights July 10, 2012Posted by The Careers Group News in : graduate recruitment , trackback
“Well-organised as always and we really appreciated the fantastic space we had…This fair continues to be an exciting experience each time.”
This comment from City Year demonstrates that the summer London Graduate Fair continues to be an excellent way of bringing together employers, training organisations and enthusiastic students and graduates.
It is the largest national graduate recruitment event in the UK with exhibitors including IBM and Arcadia Group. This year, attendance was in excess of 3,000 students and graduates. As one visitor remarked, “it actually gave me the opportunity to be in touch with lead companies”.
Given the economic climate it is vital that job seekers have as many opportunities to meet employers as possible, as one visitor told us: “The best thing is that it connected students with top firms we’d otherwise be less likely to [meet]…as it’s tough to get into these firms”.
The fair also offered a wide range of presentations from careers advice on how to write the perfect CV to sector specific careers information, employer presentations and in-depth workshops. Some of these presentations are available on Careers Tagged, The Careers Group’s online graduate resource.
The next London Graduate Fair takes place 16 October 2012. Contact for exhibitor and visitor information.
