Meet the Employer Programme

 Your chance to explore your career options with visiting employers on campus

Our ‘Meet the Employer’ events are a good way to explore a range of career options in an informal environment on campus. Talk directly to professionals, hear their career stories and access insider advice.

  • Chat face-to-face in a relaxed setting
  • Discover more about working in a wide range of sectors
  • Find out about which opportunities open to you
  • Decide which roles appeal to you
  • Get insider tips to maximise your chances of success.

Whether you’re at the ’Evaluate’, ‘Explore’ or ‘Enact’ stage of your career journey, you can book to speak with visiting employers to explore your options in different sectors and for advice on applications in a relaxed, informal environment. Depending on demand, this may be one-to-one or in small groups. These are ideal situations for you to evaluate what skills are valued in the workplace and assess the type of company and job roles that appeal to you.


Where does it take place?

You meet visiting employers in our dedicated employer area in the Careers & Employability Centre, in the Event Space, both in the Davison Building or on campus.

What can I talk about?

You have the opportunity to ask employers about anything related to their job, company or sector, from 'What is a typical day like?', 'What experience do you need before applying?', to 'How to make a good application?'.

You can get an honest idea about whether it’s the right career move for you as an individual and you can also get more information that other candidates don’t have to make your application or interview performance stand out.

As it’s not an interview, they aren’t judging you!

How do you book to see an employer?

The sessions are drop-in, however we do recommend that you book your time slot ahead on the Careers Portal to avoid disappointment. Our helpdesk team are available to advise you and you can always book an appointment with one of our Careers Consultants before you meet an employer.

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 or at the Careers & Employability Service in the Davison building?
