….and with 3 very distinctive Fairs on offer in October – you’ve got lots of different opportunities for fun – or at least exploring many different career areas and opportunities. Whether it’s a job, internship, work experience or information you’re after, Fairs are a great way to talk to a wide range of employers and professional bodies, without having to go very far (Adam House or Teviot in fact). So now’s a great time to check out just what’s happening at each of these 3 very different events.
Then after a wee break for our hard-working fair organisers to gather breath and exhibitors, it’s the Global Experience Fair on 24th Oct.
With such a range of events, there really is something for everyone, so come and take a look.
The 2-day Careers Fair (9-10th Oct, 1-6.30, Adam House) is a great chance to find out about a large number of potential career opportunities, and meet over 100 employers and professional bodies who’ve traveled far and wide to recruit Edinburgh students and graduates. If it’s experience, placements or internships you’re after, you can find those there too. And if you’re after advice on using social media in job hunting, information on careers in PR or media, and more, take a look at the programme of talks which coincide with the Fair.
Looking for something a bit different?- try the Third Day: More Than Profit event (11th Oct, 1-4pm, Adam House). With its chat corners, workshops, talks and panel events, it’s definitely an event, and not ‘just’ a Fair! This is your opportunity to interact and engage with a diverse mix of third and public sector organisations from a range of areas including social enterprise, voluntary and charitable organisations, international development and culture – and more. They’ll be offering information, advice and internships to help you break into these areas. If this intrigues, check it out, come along.
And finally, after a wee break, we’re back again with the Global Experience Fair, this time in Teviot, 1-4pm. If you fancy spreading your wings and taking your experience and career beyond our shores – check out what’s on offer – camp-counselor at a kids camp in America, learning a new language, participating in a study exchange or volunteering on an ecology project – Global Opportunities has them all.
So, roll up to our Fairs and get your future plans off to a flying start by exploring the vast range of career, internship, work experience and vacation opportunities on offer.
