We recently attended the University of Bath’s Careers Fair and it was fantastic event, with lots of different businesses and opportunities for students. Having a load of recruiters together under one roof can make things a lot easier for job-hunting grads, it’s like Gradsouthwest come to life in the real world. Great opportunities and a good chance to get some exposure to different companies, to put yourself out there and make yourself known, after chatting to the recruiters at the fair we’ve put together our top tips to make sure you make the most out of your day.
To find out what our top tips are, go to Our Careers Fair Top Tips for Students and make the most of your day!
We enjoyed meeting students at Petroc this week to highlight graduate opportunities in the south west. Some great feedback with one participant commenting “the ladies are very passionate about helping grads from the south west”. We certainly are and we’re glad it shows!
Here are three photos from the day and a bit about what we did.
Our stand just before we opened – looking tidy and organised for a few minutes before a few hundred Petroc students joined us.
We ran two workshops too. Here’s Fiona in full flow explaining the services Gradsouthwest offers! We discussed graduate resources; current top employment sectors in South West England; and career development tools.
We got attendees working too… here one of them is doing our personal values and motivation exercise.
By the end of the session we had lots of happy students – here are a few more of their comments:
