Careers fairs usually take place in a big drafty hall, in which employers have set up rickety booths to explain what they do and what their recruitment process looks like. Attending a careers fair is usually a pretty long and busy day, and it's not a guarantee whether all the talks you attend will actually be valuable, in short, they can be a bit hit or miss.
This is where Springpod steps in! We've created the Apprenticeships Virtual Careers Fair; it's the best of both worlds. You'll receive all the benefits of an in-person event, like questioning future employers and receiving top tips about the application process. You'll know what the talk is about before deciding whether to attend AND if you miss one you can always catch it later.
We have employers from a range of industries, from utilities to professional services and real estate and we couldn't be more excited about our line up. So what are you waiting for? Sign up now!
Ask questions - careers fairs are only as good as you make them, so make sure you get answers to your questions.
Know what you want to get out of the event - think of a careers fair as a shopping mall; it's best to have some idea of what you want to get (bonus points for a list!). Knowing what you want will help focus you and ensure you walk away with some tangible things to implement into your CV, how you apply for jobs or even acing interviews.
Put your best foot forward - a careers fair is nowhere near as pressured as an interview but it's still a chance to impress a potential future employer, so pay attention, look (and act) engaged, and be enthusiastic - this is your future!
Follow up after - what's the point in having the top tips if you don't follow them up. This is your chance to make your application shine (direct from the employer), so make sure you implement everything you've learned.
