Careers Fair


Wednesday 24 October 2018

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.

Career Planning Cafè 
Our Careers Advisors will be on hand throughout the day for one-to-one careers coaching and to talk through your options with you, so that you can leave with an action plan.

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.

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!

I'm an international student. Are there opportunities for me?

If you're an international student, check which employers are able to sponsor work visas ahead on the app or in the booklet.

I'm a graduate. Can I attend?

Recent graduates of Royal Holloway are welcome to attend if they have graduated within the last two years.

I'm interested in recruiting students and graduates, how can I attend the fair?

If you're an employer offering graduate schemes, internships or placements, please register your interest here and further information will be sent to you.  If you have any questions, email careers@royalholloway.ac.uk.
