Participate in Career Events
Throughout the academic year Careers & Employability facilitate a number of events that will allow you to network with our students and graduates. Your organisation can get involved with careers related sessions such as industry insights, CV and Interview preparation sessions.
This provides an excellent opportunity to meet students and graduates face to face and improve the awareness of your company on campus.
We run regular recruitment fairs where employers run a stand to meet students looking for work. This is great way to introduce your business to students and future graduates. We can also feature your company’s promotional material on the university’s website in advance of the fair so students can find out more about you prior to the event.
Sector-focused panels enable you to present your company to students studying courses related to your business. Panels are built into student timetables. They keep our courses in touch with industry. Link to contact us page
Participate with Bucks Alumni & Mentoring
Bucks Alumni offer a number of opportunities for organisations to engage with our graduates. Your organisation can share career knowledge and industry experience, whilst raising your business' profile across campus and online to students and Alumni.

This is a unique opportunity to have one to one interactions with a number of students at regular intervals throughout the year. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org
