Connected Futures, 19 – 23 October 2020, is the University's annual careers festival, in line with social distancing recommendations this year we will be hosting our first ever Digital Connected Futures. Your safety as always is our prime consideration however, employers still want to talk to you!
Careers events are a great way to meet recruiters, find out more about employers and industries, and hunt for jobs. Prior research means you can quickly get beyond the basics. You'll also create a much better impression.
Whether it’s face to face or digitally having a bunch of employers ‘under one roof’ is a great opportunity; you can speak to employees to get a better insight about careers and application processes.
Think ahead: Preparing for a virtual event is exactly the same as a physical one.
Hot tip: The Digital Career Studio is available to help with, CV’s, interview preparation and assessment centres. To speak to one of our Career Coaches drop us an email at email@example.com or book an appointment via MyCareer
Do your research
Recruiters at the event will be busy and your time with them may be short. Prior research means you can quickly get beyond the basics. You'll also create a much better impression.
The absolute minimum research you should do:
What to wear
The jury is out on how you should dress some say suited and booted, while others say smart casual - it can depend on the profession. Smart casual is usually fine; clean and tidy is vital. It's important that you are comfortable, but also be professional. How you look is only one part of the presentation package.
The full programme for the event will be available soon!
