Frequently asked questions

What is the Careers and Placements Fair?

The Careers and Placements Fair gives you the opportunity to speak to a range of prospective employers in order to learn about career opportunities, job sectors and understand employer requirements. An increasingly large number of employers have year-long placements or summer internships to offer, as well as graduate training schemes.  

The fair is for students in all year groups and from any academic discipline. 

How should I prepare?

  • Go to the Careers Portal or read the Careers Fair Brochure, to check the list of employers attending.

  • Research the employers beforehand, make a note of those you are interested in and would like to speak to

  • Make notes during your conversations if you think it will be helpful afterwards to remember specific advice
  • Have some general questions to ask the employers, e.g. What's the work culture like? What roles are available? 

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 beforehand by checking the table in the Careers Fair Brochure. You will find a handy checklist here of those who are likely to offer sponsorship.

I'm a graduate. Can I attend?

We welcome recent Royal Holloway graduates to attend if they have graduated within the last two years.

Can I get on-the-day advice?

Our Careers Consultants are on hand throughout the day for a quick chat if you need any help or advice, or want to talk through your options. They will have a virtual stand just like all the employers.

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 visit the Careers Service's virtual stand on the day. We operate a "quiet hour" from 10am to 11am before the official start time, for those who find a busy fair difficult to manage.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for or simply want a chat about your career journey, why not book a one-to-one appointment with a Careers Consultant online?
