Why attend a careers fair?

With many recruiters in one room, fairs are a great way to speak with prospective employers in order to learn about career opportunities and understand their requirements. 

If you would like to attend one of our fairs but need additional support then please get in touch with the Disabilities & Dyslexia Service in advance, or speak to a member of Careers staff on the day.

Frequently asked questions

How should I prepare?

  • Do some extra research on the employers attending

  • Have some general questions to ask the employers, e.g. what's the work culture like? What roles are available? 

  • Remember to bring along your college ID card to be scanned as you enter the fair, there's no need to pre-register

What should I wear?

There is no set dress code, but remember you are there to meet real-life employers. No need to wear a suit, but a shirt and smart jeans will look better to a potential employer than a snapback and trackies!

I'm an International student. Can I get a part-time job?

If you're an international student, please check to see if you have proof of right to work in the UK and/or the terms of your student visa. To find out more, please visit the UKCISA website.

Are you an employer?

If you are an employer looking to offer paid, part-time work for our students, please email careers@royalholloway.ac.uk. All requests will be reviewed and we aim to get back to you as soon as possible. 

If you are an employer offering graduate schemes, internships or placements, please register your interest here and further information will be sent to you.  If you have any questions, please email careers@royalholloway.ac.uk.
