Employer Presentations

Many recruiters deliver presentations throughout the Autumn and Spring terms to publicise their company and recruitment opportunities to UCL students and graduates.

Presentations of up to an hour provide an ideal opportunity for you to listen to representatives from specific organisations to find out about the company, opportunities available, their recruitment process and what it’s like to work for them.

Additional time for informal networking is often available at the end of a presentation if you’re free to stay on to talk to the recruiters on a 1-1 basis.
