10 November, 11.00-18.00, London
Registration deadline: 09/11/2022
This event has been created to help level the playing field for all students. ‘It’s not what you know, it’s who you know’ is a common saying when it comes to getting a job. And that’s all well and good for students who have the necessary contacts. But what about those who don’t?
Students will meet with top UK 300-ranked employers to make those all-important connections, learn about different opportunities in a range of fields, and access exclusive information and tips from recruiters and recent graduates about application processes.
According to recent Cibyl research, students from lower income backgrounds, expect their earnings to be an average of £24,502 compared to that of those students from better off backgrounds £27,178. This is where INSPIRE can help you and level the playing field.
The event is free to attend and is much more than just another careers fair. You will spend the whole day in London:
- having quality face time with top UK 300-ranked employers to make those all-important connections.
- learning about the different opportunities available to you in a range of fields (including some that you haven’t considered or heard of before)
- accessing exclusive information and tips from recruiters and recent graduates about their employers’ application processes and the skills they are looking for
- meeting and building relationships with your peers at universities across the UK
- taking part in exercises to develop important skills including teamwork, decision-making and creativity
Who knows where this one day will lead? The attending employers are looking for their future interns and graduates, and you could be one of them. So, if you’re not sure where to begin your career planning, start with INSPIRE.
