Dress Code

Business smart/ informal or uniform, remember you are seeking to create a favourable first impression with a potential employer. Remember to bring your CV and business cards (if you have them).

How to Prepare for the Event

  • Create an up-to-date version of your CV and print off multiple copies for the event. You can use these to demonstrate your abilities to a prospective employer plus there will be a CV writing workshop which will use your current CV as a reference point.
  • Make sure you take a notebook, a pen and business cards (if you have them). The purpose of this event is learning and networking so being able to jot down information and contact details is essential.
  • Approach the event with an open mind. You will be faced with many career opportunities and pathways, some of which you may never have considered before.
  • Keep your skills and best attributes at the forefront of your mind. This will enable you to sell yourself when discussing an opportunity with an employer.
