Frequently asked questions
What can I expect?
Aspire is primarily an employability networking event, but you won’t find firms at stands handing out leaflets and reeling off the usual spiel. Instead you’ll be invited to have real conversations with representatives from top organisations, whether they are on the recruitment team, graduate schemes or board of directors and take part in unique interactive session all aimed to give you the confidence to build your professional network and succeed in the graduate recruitment process.
Is this a fast track to graduate schemes and internships?
Yes and no. Remember this event is primarily an employability networking event, you will get first hand advice from recruiters on what roles they offer, the application process, and gain useful hints and tips of information that is not online in this unique experience. It will then be your responsibility however to follow up on the contacts you speak to and put all the advice you have learnt to complete the applications.
Is there a charge for this event?
