Tips for Students Attending
Search their website. What do they do? What type of opportunities might be available?
Smile! Show organisations that you are really interested in them and the opportunities available!
Have questions ready! E.g. “How would you describe the responsibilities of the role?”; “Will I need a DBS?”; “What would a typical shift include?”; “What skills and experience are you looking for?"
Use initiative – shake hands and introduce yourself, strike up relevant conversation. Be confident and remember, they are here to find students to fill their roles! They want to help you!
If you're interested in an opportunity make sure that you set aside time to apply for it or register online after the fair. Don’t waste the chance, as you never know when the opportunity will become available again!
If you have any questions please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
