How to prepare for the event

Use the University's Careers Service

It is important that you use the services of the University's Careers Service before you attend the event. The Careers Service can provide you with advice and information on your future career direction, help you think about how you can best "sell" yourself to employers, help you think about how you can improve your employability and help you to prepare for interviews. You can book an appointment with a University Careers Adviser here . The Careers Service is in University House on the floor 1.

Application forms

Take the forms away from the fair and complete them carefully and thoroughly checking them for mistakes before sending them to employers. Completing an application form in a hurry at the fair may make your application look untidy and you may make mistakes. Make sure you get the correct contact details  from employers to return applications.


Wear something appropriate

It is best not to wear jeans and a t-shirt to attend this event. It is best to wear something smart. You may meet a potential employer at this event and it is important that you make a good impression.
