Careers Fairs


City career fairs are formally structured events where 20 to 35 employers are represented, each with their own stand. This is a rare opportunity to meet lots of companies within just a couple of hours. You will be able to speak with human resources ( HR ) representatives that can go into detail about the company's application and selection process, as well as graduate trainees that have been with the company for one or two years. Graduate trainees can talk to you more about their personal experience when applying, as well as their role duties.

Write down names of the people that you meet and use this as a way to create a strong first impression.
