Hosted across 3 days, you’ll be able to engage directly with world-class employers whilst gaining valuable online work experience across a range of industries. You’ll be able to discover whereabouts your current subjects can take you, deep dive into interesting topics led by business professionals, and think BIG when it comes to writing an application or CV. The careers represented include:
