IT Fair 2017

​Friday 10th March 2017

10.30am – 12.30pm

The Atrium, Cardiff School of Management, Llandaff Campus

​The Careers 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 attend?​

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 future
  • find your dream graduate job in your chosen industry

 

Who will be attending?

We have invited a wide variety of organisations to the event who all have IT departments or employ graduates for IT based positions.

Please find a list of all the attendees below.

What do I need to do before attending?

·         Familiarise yourself with what employers are attending and write down the ones that interest you

·         Do your research on the company so that you'll be able to talk knowledgeably about them on the day and impress the recruiters, meaning you are much more likely to be offered a role!

·         Set out a plan for the day – use the Event Guide to understand where each employer will be and create a plan to make sure you speak to everyone you need to

·         Get your CV and LinkedIn profile ready – the employer may want to see what skills and experience you have so may ask for a CV or may want to know your LinkedIn address. 

·         Confirm your place by booking onto the event via CareerHub

 

The Careers Service is here to help you get the best out of this event. If you have any questions about the day or would like to speak to someone about how best to prepare, pop into the Careers Service on either campus to talk to us. ​
