Wouldn’t it be great if you could meet up with a crowd of top graduate recruiters all in one place and pick their brains about what you need to do to get your career sorted? Well, now you can! Take charge of your future and get involved in How to get hired Live, the UK’s biggest student employability event, which is taking place at Wembley Stadium on 22 April.
How to get hired Live is your chance to be one of 600 undergraduates invited to join around 100 graduate recruiters for a day of inspiring presentations, group discussions and networking. The event is partnered by some of the best-known names in graduate recruitment, including Rolls-Royce, KPMG, Centrica and Barclays.
Daniel Perkins, global brand manager at Rolls-Royce, said, ‘Today’s competitive graduate recruitment market means it takes more than academic achievements to succeed and we look forward to helping students understand what we look for in order to enhance their employability.’
How to get hired Live will be fronted by BBC Radio One presenter Aled Hayden Jones, who will guide the speakers as they give students the inside track on getting a graduate job. Students will have the opportunity to meet around 100 recruiters of all sizes from a broad range of industries and pick up tips about how to get hired.
The event is brought to you by TARGETjobs and Bright Futures, the UK’s biggest career-focused student society network. Simon Rogers, director of TARGETjobs, commented, ‘How to get hired Live makes employability real to a large number of students in a lively, accessible and stimulating way. It’s a million miles away from a conference or a careers campus presentation.’ Simon Reichwald, director of Bright Futures, described How to get hired Live as ‘a must-attend event for students, employers and universities.’
