Careers & Placements Fair

The Autumn Careers and Placements Fair at Surrey is the biggest event in the Careers Service’s year and whilst we offer many other varied opportunities for you to meet employers, this is an important place to start. The organisations represented have an active interest in Surrey graduates; however by its very nature the Fair is not the place to find niche employment opportunities. We offer other events such as networking evenings for this.  

When: Thursday, 16th October 2014, 3 - 6:30pm

Where: PATS Playing Field

Some top tips:

Even if your favoured employer is not present, the Fair will help you to:

Practice talking to recruiters 

You are unlikely to be offered an interview but talking to prospective employers about graduate appointments can help to build your confidence

Expand your network 

Meeting recruiters and often Surrey graduates from previous years helps you build useful contacts for future reference.

Learn industry information 

Speaking to recruitment professionals in your chosen sector is a great way to learn about the industry.

Gather information about companies 

Investigating the kind of positions offered by a company tells you a lot about that organisation as a whole, this can be invaluable during the recruitment process and shows a commitment that will impress future employers

Some questions to get you started:

• What is the company culture
• Why did you choose this company
• Are continuing education and professional development important to the organisation
• How much guidance would I get in planning my career
• What would be a typical progression for a graduate
• What do you enjoy most about working here
• What would the day to day responsibilities be
• What is the company’s management style
• What kind of work could I expect in my first year
• Questions based on things you have seen on the company website
