Students from all years and disciplines attend the fairs, as well as recent alumni and post-docs. You will meet diverse students at various stages of their career journey. Some will be in the exploratory stages seeking information to decide their suitability for different sectors and roles. Others will be ready to apply for jobs and wish to enhance their understanding of your recruitment and assessment processes to make quality applications. Attendees will expect to meet with graduate recruiters/HR representatives, alumni and business representatives.
