The Careers Fair is a friendly and informal event that will take place at Fitzwilliam on Saturday 10 November 2018.
The Fair is now an annual event which is popular with Fitz students, and around 40 alumni attended in 2017. The students gain a lot from the opportunity to chat with alumni in a laid-back setting, with one student praising the "unintimidating environment with lots of really friendly and helpful alumni" and the fact it was "a relaxed way to have insightful discussions about potential careers". The Fair is a great way to meet "engaged, intelligent and enthusiastic" students, as one alumnus commented, and to network with fellow alumni. It also provides an opportunity to find interns or recruits.
Alumni from all career backgrounds are invited to the 2018 Careers Fair, whatever career path they have taken. In fact, the more diverse the range of careers represented, the more valuable the Fair is to the students. The Fair will take place in the Dining Hall, and will be followed by a special drinks reception and buffet in the SCR.
