Careers Fairs

What to Expect...

UCL Careers Fair

At our popular industry-specific fairs, you’ll get one-on-one time with many employers and graduate recruiters looking to hire UCL students and graduates. It’s an opportunity to speak to managers and recent graduates to find out about jobs you may be interested in, hiring selection processes and current opportunities as well as a chance to ask questions important to you. A broad range of employers attend our fairs, from international organisations to small and medium businesses, so you can really compare what they have to offer.

Before you arrive

Make the most of your time at our Careers Fairs by doing a little research beforehand.
