Types of Career Events
Careers events come and can be grouped into three main categories: career fairs, career seminars and employer presentations. They’re great because of the following reasons:
You can meet employers, get top quality careers advice and maybe even find yourself a job or internship. “So, let’s explain in brief what happens at each careers event?
Career fairs are held at the university and are usually focused on a specific sector, be it engineering, finance, law etc. At career fairs, graduate employers set up a fancy looking stand and hand out A LOT of freebies. throughout the year we offer a variety of different career fairs giving you the opportunity to meet employers.
We host an events that bring employers/recruiters/and students together right here on campus.
Career seminars, on the other hand, are organized and hosted by AASTMT’s (CDC) that usually addresses a specific topic. For instance, CV workshops, a talk on using social media in networking and job search and a presentation on interviewing techniques, and many other topics would all fall under the category of career seminars. Will be professional trainers, guest speakers from a specific industry at these events, and there is usually the chance to network with these speakers after the presentation, which could lead to an internship or work experience!
Finally, employer presentations are usually organized by the employer. This also means that these career events are held at the employer’s office, as opposed to the university itself. These events allow you to gain an insight into life as employee at a specific company and you could even find out what your dream graduate job would be. Attendance to these events looks very impressive on your CV, as you’ve taken the time to learn more about opportunities at a specific company and have networked with employees who currently work there.
Workshops and Sessions help you explore career options and develop your interpersonal and professional skills
