It’s important to know that in the UK many graduate jobs will have application deadlines as early as October (to start work a year later). To fit in with these deadlines many of our careers fairs will happen very soon after you start your course. For example, our Finance & Consulting careers fair is on 2 and 3Oct 2019.

Don’t miss the opportunities to network with lots of employers keen to recruit Imperial students: check the times and dates of our main careers fairs.

As well as the main careers fairs there will be many opportunities to meet with employers which will be advertised via JobsLive and our weekly careers news email sent out every Friday. You are strongly advised to keep checking the programme as new events are added every week.
