Employability and Careers

Autumn Fair

This year our Autumn Fair was held on Wednesday 11 October and attracted 149 companies offering a wide range of graduate roles and placements.

The Autumn Careers and Placements Fair at Surrey is the biggest event in the Employability and Careers Centre's year and provides an exciting opportunity for students to meet graduate employers and to network

The Fair creates an informal, friendly space for you to kick-start your career journey, explore options, network and ask questions of representatives of companies with an active interest in Surrey graduates. It provides an excellent chance to practice networking skills and broaden your career horizons, whatever your degree and current career thoughts. To see which companies attended see our Autumn fair guide  the listing below.
