UL Graduate Careers Fair 2021 - Book your Place

UL GRADUATE CAREERS FAIR 2021 / GRADUATE RECRUITMENT 2021/22

Date:

Thursday 7th October: UL Graduate Careers Fair 2021

Location:

Virtual Careers Fair Platform - Register now on: GraduateLand (Video

Times: 12-4pm 

​This year sees a change in the delivery of the Fair from a one-day on-campus event to a virtual event hosted on a Virtual Careers Fair Platform. The date above was agreed in consultation with the other Irish universities. We would recommend early booking as there is a significant amount of logistics required for the set-up of Virtual Careers Fair platforms. 

We expect to attract more than 3,500 students and graduates from all disciplines over the course of the day.

Booking Procedure: Students need to register and upload their CV on: GraduateLand before and up to the day of the fair 7th of October.

Students: For those of you who have never attended a virtual Graduate Careers Fair (or Recruitment Fair), this provides you with a unique opportunity to meet with many employers who plan to recruit graduates in the year 2021/22. Some of these employers will also have immediate vacancies to fill. We have 130 organisations participating in the Fair so far this year. There will be large and small companies, local, national and international companies, across all disciplines. What they have in common is an interest in meeting students who may be potential employees in 2022. 

The UL Graduate Careers Fair gives you the opportunity to:

  • Make initial contact with leading graduate employers in many sectors of industry and commerce.
  • Get expert advice on what a career with a particular company might involve and how you can get the job you want.
  • Collect company information  to help you compare companies.
  • Determine which organisation you would like to join.

To make the best of this opportunity you will need to be prepared. Few employers will offer you a job on the spot, but if you make the right impression, this will be to your advantage at the interview stage. Here are some tips to help you on the day:

 

  • Do some research on companies you want to see.
  • For help in preparing a CV, please check for available events in CareersConnect.
  • Book a slot to have your CV checked on our online CV Clinics. We ask that before you book your appointment, ensure that you have uploaded your CV, so that the Careers Advisor will have a chance to review it before your meeting.
  • Interview practice is available 24/7 from any location. You can access the platform directly and complete practice interviews independently at a time that best suits you.

    Please find the link to the UL ShortlistMe 

  • Make a note of the names of any contacts you make on the day.
  • Think about your strengths and skills and be able to tell an employer what you have to offer.
  • Think about what questions you want to ask them: What vacancies do they have? What are their requirements? What training opportunities do they provide?
  • Be sure to make contact with the less well-known organisations also as they often have very challenging opportunities to offer.
