Opportunity: Careers & Employability Fair this Wednesday 10am-3pm

FindYourFeet_CareersFair_Logo_cropped_20Nov2013The University of Lincoln’s Annual Careers & Employability Fair is called ‘Find Your Feet’. It’s on Wednesday 20th November 2013 from 10am to 3pm in the Engine Shed.  This event is one of the best ways to start planning your career whether you are a 1st, 2nd, final or postgraduate student. This is from the Head of Careers & Employability, Mark Stow:

Each year the Careers and Employability Team host ‘Find Your Feet’. The purpose of our fair, as always, is to promote ALL opportunities – volunteering, part-time work, gap years, graduate opportunities and undergraduate placements.  So there really is something there for all students of all year groups, levels of study and discipline. Indeed, many of the employers, from Siemens to Experience Teaching Abroad, offer opportunities to students regardless of their subject of study – our fair is for all of your career needs.

Last year we had over 65 exhibitors and over 1300 students attend over a 4 hour period. This year, our event promises to be bigger and better than ever, with over 70 exhibitors. It is such a positive reflection on how far we have developed as a university that each year we seem to be attracting more and more of the larger national recruiters, and brands which will resonate with staff and students alike.

The Careers & Employability Team have worked tirelessly to ensure that this event is a great success. We have detailed information for students regarding how to approach the fair and get the most out of the event and have printed workbooks for students to utilise on the day. These are available from the Careers & Employability drop in centre within Enterprise@Lincoln, which is open daily between 10am to 2pm.  In addition, the Careers & Employability Team will be offering our usual CV surgery for students to bring their CVs for their annual MOT.

Full details of the event, advice for students and a list of employers in attendance are available on our website.
