Our Fairs are one of the best ways to meet our students and graduates and one of the highlights of the University calendar. We hold a number of Fairs throughout the year including the Dundee Careers Fair and Dundee Law Fair. These are a great way to meet our students and graduates, promote your opportunities and build awareness of your brand. Our events are open to all students and graduates, including those from other institutions.

Engage with Students
Skills Sessions: We run an interactive weekly programme of events led by employers and Careers Advisers to help our students gain insight into the top skills you look for when hiring graduates. These sessions can cover a range of topics such as personal branding, commercial awareness, interview skills, application writing, and a guide to assessment centres. We value and welcome your input in delivering these sessions.
Guest lectures: We welcome you to give guest lectures on our modules. This is a popular way to reach a large cohort of students.
Mentoring: We look for individuals to mentor the top students enrolled on our Leadership In Practice programme, delivered by our Officer Training Corps on behalf of Sandhurst Military Academy. Mentors interact with students on a one-to-one basis to help them build and enhance leadership skills.
Promote your brand on campus
Having a presence on campus can really boost students’ awareness of your brand. We have a variety of activities you can participate in and are more than happy to tailor any activities to suit your requirements. Our team can advise on the optimum time to come on campus and will arrange the venue and promotion.
Some popular activities include:
Presentations and Insight Sessions: Presentations are an opportunity to give an overview what it’s like to work at your organisation, talk through the recruitment process and highlight upcoming vacancies.
Stalls: We can provide you with a stall in one of our high footfall areas on campus. This is a great way to your organisation and opportunities to students, particularly if you’re looking to recruit from different subject areas.
Interviewing: We can arrange for space to be made available for you to conduct interviews.
