Confused about your career?  Don't worry we've got your back!

Careers Service staff will be outside the Careers Service, in the marquee, between 12 pm and 3 pm. You'll be able to come and speak with us about finding the right fit for you, so do please stop by either before or after you have attended the fair. Plus we will be delivering taster talks on CVs, interview techniques and how to network with employers at the fair - and much more.

Bristol Opportunities

Love Bristol and want to stay? Come and talk to the team in Marquee 2 about city opportunities, graduate vacancies, internships and business start-ups.

PGR students

This fair is for you too! Did you know the majority of PhD students don’t go into academia? Take this opportunity to find out what other options are available for PhD and Masters students. Meet a range of employers and talk to them about their perceptions of PhD students and how you can sell the skills you get through research.

There will be talks for PGR students running during the fair as well as a chance to talk to our Postgraduate Faculty Employability Consultant about any specific careers questions.
