It provides an excellent chance to practice networking skills and broaden your career horizons, whatever your degree and current career thoughts.

Some top tips:
Even if your favoured employer is not present, the Fair will help you to:
Practise talking to recruiters
You are unlikely to be offered an interview but talking to prospective employers about graduate appointments can help to build your confidence.
Expand your network
Meeting recruiters and often Surrey graduates from previous years helps you build useful contacts for future reference.
Learn industry information
Speaking to recruitment professionals in your chosen sector is a great way to learn about the industry.
Gather information about companies
Investigating the kind of positions offered by a company tells you a lot about that organisation as a whole. This can be invaluable during the recruitment process and shows a commitment that will impress future employers.
Some questions to get you started:
• What is the company culture?
• Why did you choose this company?
• Are continuing education and professional development important to the organisation?
• How much guidance would I get in planning my career?
• What would be a typical progression for a graduate?
• What do you enjoy most about working here?
• What would the day-to-day responsibilities be?
• What is the company’s management style?
• What kind of work could I expect in my first year?
• Questions based on things you have seen on the company website.
