We believe our students deserve those valuable one-to-one conversations with employers. That’s why you can book a 10 minute telephone appointment with your favourites for Thursday 28 October (take a look at their availability via the app from Tuesday 19 October). Take this opportunity to give yourself the edge and find out more about the organisation, job role and how to make a great application. Our friendly employers are keen to talk to you. You can book your appointment via Careers Fair Plus and we’ll notify you when bookings are open.
Our expert careers consultants provide CV reviews, careers advice and more via webinars or one-to-one telephone appointments throughout the year (bookable on MyJobsOnline).
You can also attend our ‘Prepare for the Law Careers Fair’ session on 21 October at 13:00.
