What’s in it for you?

The 2018 STEM Fair attracted over 3,000 students and we expect over 2,800 in 2019. This event will provide a fantastic opportunity for employers to have face to face interactions with students from the Faculties of Engineering, Maths and Physical Sciences, Biological Sciences and Earth and Environment.

Employers will have the chance to network and talk to students interested in Placement Years, Summer Internships and Graduate Positions. 

The Fair is heavily advertised through:

  • Targeted emails to students
  • A4 posters around campus
  • An advertising banner outside the Refectory (daily footfall of over 12,000)
  • Word of mouth through the Careers Centre staff and colleagues within faculties
  • Adverts on the student portal of the University
  • Adverts on the graduate portal targeting 2019 graduates
  • Lecture shouts
  • Supporting work with societies
  • Promotion on the Leeds Careers Fair Plus App
  • Posts on numerous University of Leeds social media platforms
