FAQs

How can I access the fair?

Please visit the website:HERE

Do I need to downlaod anything?

You do not need to download anything in advance of the fair but please make sure you log in using Chrome or Firefox browsers. If you would like to have the opportunity to talk to any of the employers one-to-one, you must allow access to your camera and microphone.

If you find that cannot access your camera and microphone, please make sure you have given permission to your browser by clicking the lock icon at the top left-hand side of the URL, then “Allow”. Ensure “Cookies” are allowed, too.

Who will I be able to speak to?

There will be members from the graduate recruitment teams of all exhibitors and some may even have recent grads or senior members of staff who you’ll be able to put your questions to!

How do I “chat” to an exhibitor?

When you go into an exhibitor booth you will see a green “chat” button on the right hand side. Once you’ve pressed this, you will be directed to discussion topics. Click the “chat” button below the topic that most aligns with your query. You can leave a message for the company and they will reply either in the chat box or via a face-to-face call. Once you’ve left a message, you will receive a notification – so keep an eye on your message box on the top right-hand side of the screen.

Do I need to make an appointment to speak to any of the employers?

If you would like a video chat with an employer, you can request a meeting through their employer booth. There will be times to choose from and you’ll receive a notification when your request has been accepted. Make sure your profile is complete – this will boost the chances of your request being accepted!

Webinar: Online careers fairs - what are they and how can graduates prepare for them?

University fairs and careers fairs have been impacted by the pandemic’s social distancing measures, which has resulted in many institutions and organisations making the decision to host careers fairs virtually for the next few months.

In this webinar we discuss what students can expect from online careers fairs and how to best prepare for them. Each member of the panel has been involved, either as an organiser or an attendee, in an online careers fair since the start of the pandemic. They brought us their insights into what an online careers fair consists of, how students can best stand out when attending and what employers are looking for when they’re in front of the computer screen at a virtual careers fair.

We also talked about some of the potential pitfalls of attending a virtual fair versus one in person, covered some more niche tips for international students and looked at how not to sound ‘creepy’ when following up on LinkedIn.

The panel:

Aisling Ní Mhiurí, events manager of gradireland
Ugochi Nwachuku, early careers recruiter at Marsh & McLennan
Orianne Wightman, senior talent acquisition partner at Experian
