Recruitment fair offers graduates helping hand onto the career ladder
The University of Southampton's annual Graduate Recruitment Fair takes place on Thursday 16 June between 11am and 4pm at Garden Court at the University's Highfield Campus.
The Fair is organised by the University's Careers Advisory Service and is sponsored this year by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). Over 30 organisations, ranging from international blue chip companies to public sector organisations and local businesses, will be exhibiting with opportunities across a wide variety of careers. Exhibitors include contractors Balfour Beatty, audit and business service providers Ernst and Young, and the Hampshire Constabulary.
As well as being open to graduates and postgraduates from the University of Southampton, recent graduates from any university are welcome to attend.
Ann Collins, Director of the Careers Advisory Service, encourages all graduates to make the most of the Fair: "It presents graduates with an excellent opportunity to speak to major graduate recruiters face-to-face about the jobs they have available. Many organisations are prepared to consider job applications from people from any degree discipline. The feedback from those attending in previous years has been very positive."
Germaine Cooper, South East Recruitment Manager for PwC, believes that the Fair is perfectly timed. She comments: "You've finished your exams and planned your holiday - but what about your career? PricewaterhouseCoopers is delighted to sponsor the University of Southampton's Graduate Recruitment Fair. It will provide graduates with a great opportunity to meet top employers who can help them plan their career before they swap their books for beach towels."
