What makes you attractive?

What makes you attractive?

To employers that is!

Every year UC hosts a series of Careers Fairs to connect you with employers before you graduate. Kicking off the series is the Commerce Careers Fair and Law and Justice Recruitment Evening, Wednesday 7 March in the Undercroft.

Commerce Careers Fair
Wednesday 7 March, 1.30pm – 4.00pm
Undercroft, Puaka-James Hight

Law and Justice Recruitment Evening
Wednesday 7 March, 6.00pm – 8.00pm
Undercroft, Puaka-James Hight

If you aren’t in your final year yet, Careers Fairs are for you too. Learn about internships, summer jobs and part-time work – it is never too early to start thinking about the direction you are going in and what your next steps might be.

Come along and talk to employers, find out what they have to offer and what you can do to make yourself an attractive candidate after graduation – you might find there are simple things you can do now to make yourself an even more attractive graduate.

Top tip 1: Don’t be guilty of narrow thinking. Did you know banks often recruit engineering graduates too? Careers Fairs are a great way to find out all your options and you never know you might find a different career opportunity you never thought of.

Top tip 2: Put your best self forward at the fairs. Leave scruffy at the flat.
