With so much content being developed online over the last 18 months we believe it is just as, if not even more important than ever for students to be able to meet the employers who are looking to recruit them all in one place at their University Careers Fairs.
When: Thursday 4 November, 10am-6pm
Where: Virtual, using the specialist Careers Fair Plus platform
What you’ll get: A virtual stand complete with customisable company profile, weblink to company webpages, and video content if desired plus the ability to set up a mixture of one to one appointments and open sessions of your choice.
Target exhibitors: This Fair is targeted towards recruiters and their representatives with insight opportunities, placement years, summer internships, graduate schemes and other graduate jobs and opportunities relevant to our student body, as well as professional and membership bodies able to provide careers information, advice and support to our students and third party student and graduate recruitment service providers.
We are mindful of providing a good variety of opportunity for our students and therefore need to ensure a wide variety of sectors and job roles are represented. For this reason we reserve the right to decline any bookings that we feel do not fulfil this remit or provide a good match.
Target audience: All University of Essex students from all years and all disciplines as well as recent Essex graduates.
Our students come to Essex from a range of backgrounds, including 30% from areas that typically send very few students into Higher Education. 45% of our U/G students and 54% of our PG students are from a BAME background. Around 37% of our students come from households with incomes of less than £25,000, around a third have told us they are first in their family to go to University and around a third are known to be state school educated. Having taken this bold step, 77% of our graduates gain good degrees at Essex.
Studying at Essex is not just about getting a degree, it is also about getting an education. Our students have come a long way just to get here, and whilst here we encourage them to make a difference to the lives of others, grasp opportunities that will help further their careers, and find creative ways to enrich their university experience. We instil in them the Essex Spirit, a proud tradition of encouraging students to challenge convention and think differently and the belief that where you come from should NOT limit how far you can go.
We were also named University of the Year at the Times Higher Education Awards in November 2018, Gold rated in the Teaching Excellence Framework and ranked top 25 for research quality in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020.
