How to get the most out of the MSc Careers Fair on September the 19th

In our final blog Careers Relationship Manager, Charlie Statham, gives us an insight into how you can prepare for the annual MSc Careers Fair.

About the Fair:

Careers fairs give you the chance to meet employers face-to-face, and to learn about current vacancies and opportunities available. The recruiters are trying to market their organisations to you.

Cass holds its annual careers fair during the induction period before term begins – this year it is taking place on Monday the 19th of September between 14:00 and 17:30 at etc. venues, 155 Bishopsgate, London, EC2M 3YD.

Why do we hold it so early?  We hold it at this time because many of the employers attending the fair will have already opened their graduate recruitment process and many will have deadlines for applications in October / November

The fair is an opportunity for you to ask questions and market yourself to potential employers. Often the stands will be manned by graduate recruitment staff, recent alumni and / or senior managers.  It can be difficult for students to stand out at Fairs as there are so many people there and it can seem overwhelming. Being prepared therefore is the best way to make a good impression and get noticed.
