Frequently asked questions 

Why should I attend the Part-time Jobs Fair?

  • It's a great opportunity to find out about a wide range of opportunities all in one place and ask your questions directly to those who will be recruiting

  • The event is very informal, but you may impress some employers so much that they fast-track you through the recruitment process. Legoland and Thorpe Park often hold on-the-spot interviews during the fair too
  • The employers attending are there because they are specifically interested in recruiting Royal Holloway students, so it will save you a lot of time on internet searches that may not bring results

What are the benefits of a part-time job?

  • Working part-time is a good way to help cover living and academic expenses while studying
  • It’s also a way to gain valuable work experience before graduating
  • A part-time job is a great way to find out what you like and don’t like about a role and what you’re good at
  • You learn new skills when working. For example, by interacting with people, whether it’s your line manager or a team, you are building some communication skills. These are the important transferable skills which employers are looking for
  • Apart from the advantage of earning some extra money while you study, part-time work provides great experience, which can help you when applying for jobs after you graduate
  • You can update your CV and LinkedIn profile with your role and responsibilities and when it comes to job applications and interviews, you have real-world examples to discuss with employers.

How should I prepare?

  • Do some extra research on the employers attending

  • Have some general questions to ask the employers, e.g. What's the work culture like? What roles are available?
