Feedback on our previous fairs:

1) 'The process to sign up for this event was simple and easy and was wonderfully supported.'

2) 'Successful interviews held on the day, with others pending. All student correspondence was very professional.’

3) 'I thought the organisation for the Job Fair was amazing, we were one of the later companies to join I think as we only enrolled last Thursday, however everything ran smoothly.’

4) ‘I think it is a credit to yourself and your support team it ran the way it did, from our side, to be able to enquire about possible candidates, attend a Job Fair and come away with applicants all within one week is incredible.’
