Service at Cardiff Metropolitan University has teamed up with the School of
Management to provide a careers fair tailored primarily to students looking for
a career in IT.
The event is free
to attend, open to students of all years and whilst it is tailored towards
students studying IT we welcome all students to come along.
Why should I
If you are looking
to gain valuable work experience, undertake a short or long-term internship or
find a graduate job, this careers fair is for you. The attending organisations
have been specifically invited because they have 'live' opportunities to
discuss with you so this is a great opportunity for you to better understand
your options and potentially find work. Here are some of the other key reasons
you should attend;
- gain a greater understanding of the IT sector
- enhance your employability skills by gaining real-life work experience
- enable you to make informed module choices and decide on a career path
to suit you
- start to build networks with recruiters that may be very useful in the
- find your dream graduate job in your chosen industry
Who will be
We have invited a
wide variety of organisations to the event who all have IT departments or
employ graduates for IT based positions.

do before attending?
