Preparing job ready graduates

The first careers fair of 2012 proved to be a great success as Edge Hill University students flocked to the Hub and Hale Hall to speak with over 40 representatives from a variety of companies.

Arranged by Edge Hill’s Careers Service, this recent event provided students from all year groups within the Faculty of Arts and Sciences with the opportunity to learn more about a wide range of graduate positions, part-time work, summer jobs and volunteering opportunities currently on offer with leading international, national and regional organisations.  

By speaking personally to private and public sector professionals, as well as our own dedicated careers team, students could access all the advice and guidance they could need to help them become successful and job ready graduates.  

Former Edge Hill University Law student Louise Beckett attended the fair with her colleagues representing her current employer, Duncan Gibbs Solicitors, to provide careers assistance and to promote placements within their firm.  

Louise comments, “Throughout my course I was actively encouraged to obtain work experience and this proved really useful when I went for job interviews upon graduation. I really enjoyed my time at Edge Hill and now, as a qualified solicitor, I am keen to offer my support to current students as they make their future plans.”
