Careers and Placement Fair 2013

Careers and Placement Fair

Tuesday 21st October 2014

Bookings are now open for this event. If you would like to book a stand space you will need to register as an employer, or log in if you are already registered. To do this, click here. You will then need to complete the on-line booking form, entitled ‘Careers and Placement Fair 2014’.

Due to high demand for this event, we have had to limit the number of spaces available to recruitment agencies and jobs portals to a maximum of three.  If your organisation falls within this category, you are strongly advised to book promptly to avoid disappointment.

This fair is aimed at current Exeter students from all disciplines and all years of study. Students are advised they can use the fair as a fact-finding event if they are not sure of the career path they want to follow, as a way to meet and find out more details about particular employers or to investigate further study options.

Our 2013 fair was fully booked with a waiting list by early July so if you are interested in attending, we strongly recommend booking as soon as possible.

Interested in sponsoring this event?  Please see our 2014-15 - Careers and Placement Fair Sponsorship Package for more details.
