You're invited to our annual Meet the Employers Fair

Issue date: 06 October 2017

Our annual Meet the Employers Fair has become the largest careers fair in the South West and we run it exclusively for you. It's on Wednesday 18 October between 11:00 – 15:00 at the Exhibition and Conference Centre, Frenchay Campus – make sure it's in your diary!

Why attend?

It's your opportunity to connect with employers from a variety of sectors offering graduate roles, placements, work experience, international opportunities, internships and more.

It's the one day of the year where they'll all be under one roof – so we'd recommend you come along.

Download our UWE Bristol Career Fair Plus app

We've created an app to help you make the most of the fair:

  • see the full list of employers attending
  • filter companies by sector and faculty
  • save your favourite employers
  • read about the companies and roles on offer
  • view the floor plan
  • beat the queues

Download the app from iTunes or Google Play.

How to prepare for the Fair

The Fair is a great opportunity to line up some work experience and to make connections with companies you might want to work for in the future.

  • Update your CV – our Careers Toolkit on InfoHub has plenty of tips to get you started. You should also update your LinkedIn profile.
  • Use the list of employers to figure out who you want to speak to. Spend some time researching them and get some questions ready.
  • Build your elevator pitch – create a 60 second summary about yourself and your goals to get the conversation started. You'll find an elevator pitch builder on our Careers Toolkit on InfoHub under CVs and applications.

Talk to a range of employers

Many employers don't mind which course you're studying, so there's a huge amount of opportunities open to you. Talking to employers can help you get a feel for different companies and sectors and build your confidence for future interviews.

How to get there

The Fair is held at the Exhibition and Conference Centre, Frenchay Campus.

Frenchay Campus is well served by buses to and from our other campuses and the city centre - check our travel and transport information for details.
