Frequently asked questions
What can I expect?
Survey the World 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 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 help you achieve your dream 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 Survey the World, 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.
Do I need to bring my CV?
No, you do not need to bring your CV. We will send your CV to the event partners along with your headshot, which will be taken on the day upon arrival. We will also be sending you a ‘how to get hired’ email after the event, which will include advice from us on how best to tailor your CV to the companies along with their application deadlines, so you will be all set to apply.
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.
What about the process after the event?
By attending Survey the World you will have already proven that you are the type of applicant the event partners are looking for. So, following the event, Jade and the team at targetjobs will be keeping in contact with you to find out how you are getting on with your applications and to offer our help and advice should you need it.
What should I do if I can no longer attend?
If for any reason you are unable to make the event, please let us know as soon as possible so that somebody else can benefit from this opportunity. You can contact Jade by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: 01491 828 915
