Graduates seeking their first step on the career ladder are set to visit Manchester for the annual Graduate Recruitment Fair on 11 and 12 June with different exhibitors present each day.
The event, running from 10.30am to 4pm each day at the Armitage Centre in Fallowfield, is organised by The University of Manchester’s Careers & Employability Division and is the UK’s largest graduate recruitment fair this year. In a recent major survey of graduate recruiters*, the Manchester Fair was voted the best in the UK.
Representatives from over 180 different organisations and institutions will exhibit at the fair, with different exhibitors present on each day. There are both local and national vacancies in a variety of sectors. Exhibitors include recruiters, such as Abercrombie & Fitch, Accenture, Aldi, BDO Stoy Hayward, Bloomberg, the Civil Service, Cranfield University, Deloitte, Edward Mellor Estate Agency, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Experian QAS, Greater Manchester Police, HJ Heinz, IBM, Lockheed Martin, Procter & Gamble, The Royal Navy, Schlumberger, Siemens, Teach First, TK Maxx, Zen Internet and many more.
New and recent graduates from all universities can attend this free event and seize the opportunity to find out about permanent and temporary jobs from all sectors, as well as postgraduate study opportunities starting Autumn 2008.
The Fair is an ideal chance for graduates to make a positive impression on several potential employers at once. Graduates are advised to dress smartly and bring copies of your CV. It’s also a good idea to research companies and their vacancies in advance, as you will be able to better impress if companies feel you have done your homework in advance.
