The UL Spring Careers Fair 2021 will be hosted online on Wednesday 10th March. The Fair will be open to students from 12.00pm to 4.00pm.

What is a Careers Fair?

For those of you who have never attended a virtual Careers Fair (or Recruitment Fair), this provides you with a unique opportunity to meet with many employers who plan to recruit graduates in the year 2021. Some of these employers will also have immediate vacancies to fill. There will be large and small companies, local, national and international companies, across all disciplines. What they have in common is an interest in meeting students who may be potential employees in 2021. 

The Careers Fair gives you the opportunity to:

  • Make initial contact with leading graduate employers in many sectors of industry and commerce.
  • Get expert advice on what a career with a particular company might involve and how you can get the job you want.
  • Collect company information  to help you compare companies.
  • Determine which organisation you would like to join.

To make the best of this opportunity you will need to be prepared. Few employers will offer you a job on the spot, but if you make the right impression, this will be to your advantage at the interview stage.

Here are some tips to help you on the day:

  • Do some research on companies you want to see. 
  • CV reviews:

  • Make a note of the names of any contacts you make on the day.
  • Think about your strengths and skills and be able to tell an employer what you have to offer.
  • Think about what questions you want to ask them: What vacancies do they have? What are their requirements? What training opportunities do they provide?
