UL CAREER FAIRS 2020 / GRADUATE RECRUITMENT 2020/21

Date:

Thursday 8th October: UL Graduate Careers Fair 2020

Location:

Virtual Careers Fair Platform - GraduateLand (Check out this Employer Tutorial 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. 

Booking Procedure: If you would like to participate in one of the Career Fairs, log in to www.careersconnect.ul.ie employer login before the 30th September to complete your booking. 

Employers: Registration for the Careers Fair opens in May every year for Exhibitors. Check the Step-by-Step Guides for details on how to register, post vacancies, and retrieve a password reminder:

Students will have 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 they can get the job they want.
  • Collect company information to help compare companies.
  • Determine which organisation they would like to join.

To make the best of this opportunity we encourage UL Students to be prepared:
 

  • Have some research on companies they want to see. Read the company entries on the Careers Fair WebApp carefully and check the company websites.
  • For help in preparing a CV, attend the many online CV Live Chats Workshops during the semester.
  • Book a slot to have their CV checked on our online CV Clinics on CareersConnect.
  • Make a note of the names of any contacts they make on the day.
  • Think about their strengths and skills and be able to tell an employer what they have to offer.
  • Think about what questions they want to ask Employers: 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.
