Careers Fairs in Asia - August 2019

** Due to the Coronavirus outbreak placing travel restrictions on employers, students and staff we have paused our plans for the fairs in 2020 and we are monitoring the situation. As soon as further information becomes available we will update this webpage. In the meantime, please click here for coronavirus guidance for staff and students. **


The Careers Service takes part in a number of annual recruitment fairs held in mainland China and Hong Kong, in partnership with Imperial College, London School of Economics, Columbia University and the University of Chicago. These are attended by recruiters offering graduate opportunities to returning students and graduates in their home country.

Most employers are recruiting for full time or graduate positions that start in the autumn of 2020. Others have immediate roles or may be recruiting summer interns. They won't be holding formal interviews at the Fairs but at past fairs some organisations have held informal discussions, so come prepared.
