Frequently asked questions
What can I expect?
Future Female Engineers is primarily an employability networking event, but you won’t find employers at stands handing out leaflets and reeling off the usual spiel. Instead you’ll have indepth conversations with representatives from top engineering employers, whether they are on the recruitment team, graduate scheme or board of directors, and you’ll take part in unique interactive sessions, all aimed to help you kick-start your career.
Is this a fast track to graduate schemes and internships?
Yes and no. Remember that this event is primarily an employability networking event: you will get first-hand information from recruiters on what roles they offer, advice on their application processes, and useful hints and tips that you can’t find online. However, it will then be your responsibility to follow up with the contacts you speak to and use all of the knowledge you have gained to help you complete applications. It has been known for previous attendees to be fast tracked through an event partner’s application process, so make sure you update your CV to mention that you attended Future Female Engineers, or include it in your applications.
What will I be doing on the day?
We’ll group you with other attendees (usually a maximum of ten students per group) to work on team challenges, which are a great opportunity to showcase teamwork, decision making and communication skills. You’ll also participate in skills sessions, (don’t worry they won’t be testing you on anything!) with recruiters, who’ll give you the inside scoop on applications, interviews, assessment centres and how to create your personal brand so you stand out from the crowd.
What if I'm worried about the team challenge?
While we understand the idea of a “team challenge” can be a little daunting, we would like to reassure you that the session is absolutely nothing to worry about! It’s not there to judge you or make you feel uncomfortable, the purpose of the session to allow you a to have a practice run for assessment centres with the guidance of employer to help you prepare for the real thing. A good way to prepare is to either read our advice articles on assessment centres .
What should I wear?
Smart business wear. Please do not wear T-shirts, denim or trainers (even black ones!). Remember that you could be meeting your future employer and first impressions are really important.
Can I bring a friend?
We would love for you to recommend this event to a friend. However, they will have to go through the same process as you (register, interview and be invited). We will have to turn away anyone on the day who has not come through this process - whilst we would love to have everybody, we are restricted on the numbers that we can invite.
Will there be a prayer room accessible throughout the event?
Yes, a prayer room will be available at any point of the event. If you require access to a prayer room, feel free to approach any member of our team who will be happy to guide you.
