The next careers fair will take place on Wednesday 24 October 2018, 11am to 3pm in the Picture Gallery and North Quad.
There is no need to register. Simply turn up any time between 11am and 3pm.
Why attend a careers fair?
With many recruiters together on campus, fairs are a great way to speak with prospective employers in order to learn about career opportunities and understand their requirements. They aren't just for final year students either; first and second years can also benefit. Around three quarters of employers last year offered placements and/or internships as well as graduate training schemes.
Careers Consultants' Corner
Our Careers Advisors will be on hand throughout the day for a quick chat if you need any help or advice, or want to talk through your options. Look out for them in the Marquee and Picture Gallery.

Need additional support?
If you'd like to attend the fair but need some assistance, get in touch with the Disabilities and Dyslexia Service in advance, or speak to a member of the careers team on the day. You will also be able to avoid the crowds and attend the fair from 10.00am if you wish - and make sure you speak to Change 100 who offer summer work placements exclusively for students with a disability.
Frequently asked questions
How should I prepare?
Research the employers beforehand, by downloading the RHUL Careers Fair App from your app store or pick up a copy of the booklet in the Careers Service in the Davison Building
Have some general questions to ask the employers, e.g. what's the work culture like? What roles are available?
There's no need to pre-register, but remember to bring your college ID card to be scanned as you enter the fair
What should I wear?
There's no set dress code, but remember you are there to meet real-life employers. No need to wear a suit, but a shirt and smart jeans will look better to a potential employer than a snapback and trackies!
