Upcoming Bournemouth University careers fairs are now free to exhibitors

Posted on: 09/10/2020

This year, Bournemouth University’s (BU) popular jobs portal and recruitment service, MyCareerHub, and a programme of online careers fairs are free to join for organisations, in a move to support both graduates and employers.

The university is now inviting organisations to join the upcoming BU Annual Careers Fair on Tuesday 20 and Wednesday 21 October, and the BU Nursing, Health & Social Care Careers Fair on 25 November.

Both events are aimed at recent graduates and attract employers who are looking to recruit professional/graduate-level roles starting immediately, or the following June. BU are also looking to support the promotion of work placements (typically 15-30 weeks) and quality part-time opportunities.

BU’s online careers fairs are designed to allow organisations the freedom to define their own level of participation. A business can communicate opportunities and engage with students and graduates in a way that suits its needs.

While roles can be added to the MyCareerHub jobs portal all year-round, the BU Online Careers Fairs allow organisations to connect with the right students in a more concentrated manner.

One business owner who attended a past event said: “I thought the organisation for the online jobs fair was amazing. We were one of the later companies to join, however everything ran smoothly. From our side, to be able to enquire about possible candidates, attend a job fair, and come away with applicants all within one week and for free is incredible.”

For more information on the students and graduates attending the fair, see BU’s Postgraduate and Undergraduate courses. You can read more about BU’s upcoming events below.
