Frequently asked questions

AWE - Insight Day is primarily an employability networking event, but you won’t find them at stands handing out leaflets and reeling off the usual spiel. Instead, you’ll be invited to have real conversations with their representatives, 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!

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 AWE - Insight Day or include it in your applications.

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.

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.

You will need to bring your travel receipts with you in order to claim back your expenses. It’s also a good idea to bring a notepad and pen.

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 our event team by email: or by phone: 01491 828 915.

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, quick chat 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.
