BU Annual Careers Fair

18,19 and 20 October 2022
limited to 15 employers per day.  Attend on the day of your choice.

Our careers fairs were online in 2020 and 2021, but we are looking forward to inviting you back onto campus in the autumn.

Rather than returning to the old format of large one-day events, we will be hosting each fair over several days.

A link to the booking page will be added here in late June.

Feedback on our previous online Jobs 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.’

5) ‘I fully appreciate it is best to attend a Jobs Fair in person, however this came a very close second for me. I don’t believe we missed out on any potential candidates and my belief is that we can give students more dedicated time this way than we could in a traditional fair, as sometimes if you have multiple people interested you can find you rush things to get through everyone.'
