Online Careers Fair FAQS

For further information about our online fairs, please see our Imperial Guide to Virtual Careers Fairs 2021

Please note that this event has now taken place, but you can view the Finance and Banking Careers Fair brochure to get an idea of the employers who attended.

The Finance and Banking Careers Fair took place online via JobsLive, on Wednesday 6 October, 10.00 - 15.00. It provides you with the opportunity to find out about a range of finance industry employers looking to recruit Imperial students. They will be offering opportunities for short insight days/weeks, summer internships and full-time graduate programmes. 

The next Finance and Banking Careers Fair is currently in the planning stages for 2022 and details will be published here once available.

The Careers Fair will involve two elements:

Individual virtual stands

Each company will have a separate page with brief information about that organisation. 

In addition, we will be producing an e-brochure which will provide a wider range of information and this will include:

  • A description of the organisation
  • Details about application processes and deadlines
  • visa requirements
  • list of the departments from which they are recruiting from
  • A range of social media links, including, LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, You Tube and Twitter

Live chats

Each organisation will be able to offer live group chats and individual one to one sessions so that you can find out more about the organisations opportunities, culture and ask specific questions that relate to you.

Live Group Chats

These will be open sessions where you can drop-in and talk to organisation representatives, along with other students. You will not need to pre-book to attend these group chats, you can just drop-in during the event.

One to one sessions

Most organisations will also offer bookable one to one sessions with representatives from various areas of their businesses. This will give you the chance to talk about issues that are specific to you and find the direct information of interest. You will need to book to attend a slot that suits you and this will all be done via the careers fair hosted in JobsLive.

How to book a live individual chat

  • As part of the event, most organisations will be offering individual one to one sessions so that you can find out more about the specific areas that are of interest to you.
  • Once you have registered to attend the event, you can then start to book these individual slots
  • Simply click onto the organisations that you are interested in and see if they have any available live slots. If they do, you can book these sessions and add these to your schedule for the day of the fair.

How to attend live group chats

  • You do not need to pre-book for the group chats, just go to each organisations pages and see if they have a live group chat. If they do, you can simply join on the day of the event.
