Careers Fair FAQs

What & who is the Computing Careers Fair for?

The Fair is for students of ALL year groups to help you find career, placement and other work experience opportunities.It is vitally important that as well as achieving a good degree, that students also make use of their time at university to gain relevant work experience.

The companies attending the Fair are here to advertise and offer vacancies to you; their organisations need graduates, placement students and interns to work in their business and so are looking for you to attend and speak to them on the day!

The companies attending will be offering 3rd / final year students graduate jobs or summer internships; for second years there will be sandwich placements or summer internships; and for first years there will be summer internships. There will also be part time work available from particular companies and opportunities for further study or training. Look through the information further down the page to find out who is offering what!

How should I approach an employer & what should I say?

Employers are coming to the Fair because they are looking for students and graduates to come and work in their business so they need you to approach them and talk to them.

A Careers Fair is an informal setting where you can talk to employers about your career objectives and in turn they can tell you about their company and the types of vacancies they are offering.

The best way to start the conversation is to introduce yourself, say which degree path you’re studying and the year you’re in, and then simply ask the employer what their company does and what they’re looking for. Its as simple as that, and remember, the employer wants you to go and speak to them!

Good opening questions to ask an employer:Can you tell me a bit about your company? What types of vacancies are you recruiting for? What subjects do you take students / graduates from? How would I apply to work for your company & what’s the application process? What skills are you looking for from students / graduates?

How should I prepare for the Careers Fair?

The best way to prepare is to have a look around this page. Read which employers are attending, what types of vacancies they offer and where they’re based; use the map below! You can then make a list of the companies you want to go and talk to.

Its also a good idea to take some print outs of your CV to give to the employers. Employers like this as it gives them the chance to remember who they’ve spoken to and they can then contact you about interviews / applications after the Fair. You can speak to the Careers Centre, the Computer Science Department’s Employability Staff, or one of your Tutors to help polish up your CV!

Who can help me with my CV?

Ahead of the Fair, you should visit the Careers Centre for help with your CV. Book an appointment with a Careers Advisor through Career Hub

You can also send your CV to our Departmental staff for review:
Helen Walters, helen.walters@edgehill.ac.uk
Michael Banford: michael.banford@edgehill.ac.uk

What are you looking for? Find out which companies you should go and see!

About: Nublue started as a two-man gig with a simple aim: to put the human touch back into web design and hosting. To be the big-city agency outside the big cities.

Bringing together all the expertise and startup money they could, in 2005 the brothers set up shop in InfoLab21 at Lancaster Uni. Nublue became a team. The more we all worked together, the clearer it became: we weren’t just graduates obsessed with awesome design and top-notch hosting. We wanted to bridge the gaps between the coding nerds, the design geeks and everyone else – our clients.

Twenty years later, and it’s a completely different world. We’re still on TV, plus we’ve recently launched our new channels QVC Beauty, QVC Style and QVC Extra, but we’re also online, on mobiles, Facebook, Twitter…whatever’s right for our customers right now, we’re right on it.Behind the scenes you’ll find a thriving community of nearly two thousand high performing and highly engaged QVC people all contributing to a culture that is uniquely QVC. Many of our people have grown up here and built brilliant careers, to our people working at QVC offers more than a job, it’s a way of life. Everyone that joins us remarks even after one day how different it feels to other organisations they have worked for previously. We think the reason for this is simple –we’re committed to making QVC a great place to work and creating the best employee experience for our people. The energy and hard work that we have put into this was officially recognised earlier this year as QVC was accredited as one of Britain’s Top Employer 2014, something that we are incredibly proud of.
